Local validation checklists

The Council is obliged to review its Local Validation Checklist for Planning Applications so they are up to date and reflect current planning policies in accordance with National Guidance.  

These checklists ensure that the Council has the right level of information submitted with planning applications at the start of the process and helps to make sure that the information requested is proportionate to the type and scale of application being made.

The Council has therefore prepared four draft validation checklists - householder, general, minerals and waste checklists alongside policy justification and a validation matrix for consultation.  The consultation was presented to Strategic Planning Board and subsequently confirmed by the Portfolio Holder for Housing, Planning and Regeneration.

It is open to all for comment, although will be of particular interest for applicants and agents who regularly submit planning applications.

The consultation period is open for 6 weeks and closes on  5 April 2019.
