Local Validation List

The 'Local List' sets out the information which we, as a Local Planning Authority, require in order to declare a planning application as valid.

The purpose of the list is to provide greater certainty to applicants about the type and extent of information required as part of their application and to ensure that the process of validation and determining applications is more efficient by reducing the need to seek further information in most cases.

The adopted list

The local list has been produced in two parts. The first covers all types of applications and the other is specifically for householder applications.

Each part of the list is separated into two sections:

  • Part A which contains the national mandatory requirements for applications as set out in legislation, and
  • Part B which sets out the local requirements for information considered necessary to deal with a particular type of application.

The two documents can be accessed below:

Information checklist

An information checklist enables you to self-certify that your submission complies with the validation requirements set out in the list and to help the checking process once we receive your application.

A copy of the checklist must be completed and submitted with the following planning applications: outline, full, reserved matters and s73/s73a. If a checklist is not submitted, your application will be declared invalid.
