A cadastral survey plan or a registered plan or plan image indicates the pegs in the ground that are used to mark the lot boundaries of a property in the form of bearings and distances, as well as the area. This is done so that the property can be easily identified by the land owners and the adjoining owners.
A survey plan will include bearings, distances and area for all parcels covered by the survey plan. Sometimes the measurements for an individual parcel are not included. This occurs where the dimensions of one parcel are the same as the adjacent lots (e.g. if lots 1 to 20 are all the same size, the dimensions may only be shown on lot 1).
Depending on when the survey was conducted, the information recorded on the plan may vary.
