National and local requirements for planning applications

Documents necessary to make a valid planning application

New houses with tree

We prepare a local list of validation requirements to clarify what information is required for planning applications of a particular type, scale or in a specific location.

To support the submission of a planning application, you will need to supply certain information. Requirements are set at both national and local level. The validation list is a comprehensive document which identifies the national and local requirements that the council needs to determine planning applications.

If you do not submit the information required in the validation list with your application, this could make your application invalid and will delay the determination of your application.

If you think some of the validation requirements in the list do not apply to your application, then you should explain why in writing when you submit the application.

This document was consulted on between 5 and 26 March 2018. The council is currently reviewing these comments.
