Information required to validate planning applications from 1 August 2020
Local Planning Authorities are required to publish a list of information required in order to 'validate' planning applications. This is known as the local validation list. The local list requirements are prepared by the Local Planning Authority to clarify what information is required to be submitted with an application.
The Government requires Local Planning Authorities to review their local list requirements every 2 years.
Following our consultation in February 2020, the amended local lists were formally approved at planning committee on the 24 June 2020. These lists will replace the existing local lists setting out the validation requirements for planning applications from 1 August 2020.
