What is a site plan?

A site plan is a detailed drawing containing the measurements of a plot of land. A site plan shows the dimensions and locations of any structures within the lot. Site plans also show the location of the lot in relation to other structures. Simply put, a site plan is a bird’s eye view of the property and what that property contains. A site plan is also called a plot plan. Information needed for a site plan can be obtained from parcel maps or a mortgage survey.
