When you apply for planning permission in the UK, you will be required to submit an Ordnance Survey map of the site where you are planning to perform your development. It is essential that this map is of the sufficient scale to allow the planning committee to get a detailed view of your project, and it is also imperative that the map is completely accurate - this is why you are discouraged from using map providers who do not offer Ordnance Survey maps. While there are some other companies that provide maps that are suitable for planning applications, in general road maps and maps used by tourists do not offer the level of detail, scale or accuracy that is needed for a planning application, so you are hereby advised not to use these.
