The validation checklist applies to all applications submitted to the Council. A revised version was introduced in January 2018.
The validation checklist:
- helps you to understand the type and extent of information that will be required
- provides greater certainty
- enables us to have all the information we need in order to determine the application, draft the planning permission and word any planning conditions required
- minimises the risk that we will have to go back to you for more information which can result in unnecessary delays
The validation checklist includes a national list of mandatory information that must be submitted with every planning application and a local list of our own requirements. You must refer to both the sets of requirements before formally submitting an application.
