Buying New Land? Have a Land Use Planning Survey Performed

Land Surveying for newly purchased land

There’s so much that goes into buying new land to build a home or commercial structure on. We wish it were as simple as buying the land, signing on the dotted lines, and starting the building process, but unfortunately it’s far from it. With so many factors to consider, such as drainage, stability concerns, traffic flow, neighboring areas, etc., having a land use planning survey performed can ensure the land you want to build on is ready for construction.

Why Have a Land Use Planning Survey Performed?

When looking for land to build a home on for you and your family, or a store, restaurant or office that’s in the perfect spot for your type of business, there’s a lot to consider. Topography, construction layout, FEMA (FIRM) flood studies and more are all factors that make up these types of surveys.

A land use planning survey is beneficial for the present and future of your new property. It gives you an idea of how much space you have to expand on in the future what needs to be cared for, maintained or changed in the present. It also allows you to learn more about the natural surroundings you plan on building near. In other words, it tells you whether it’s the right plot of land for your needs or not.

The Benefits of Land Use Planning

These types of surveys are economically, financially and environmentally beneficial. They differ depending on the state, county and/or proposed project scope, but they all serve the same purpose. If you need help deciding whether or not the land you want to build a corporate office on is the right fit, gain peace of mind by having a land use planning survey performed by a professional.

With BLAZE Design, we can help you assess your property and survey the land to help create a comprehensive land use planning survey.
