The Local Validation List provides guidance about the level and type of information required to be submitted with a planning application, in order to provide a degree of certainty and clarity to assist applicants.
The requirements are proportionate to the nature and scale of your proposal.
Please read this document carefully before submitting your application. Indicative thresholds and criteria are given to help, but please note that not all the information itemised in the local list will be required for every application.
If in any doubt about what information needs to be submitted then please contact the Council for advice. Advice on precise requirements for a specific proposal can also be obtained as part of the Council’s pre-application advice service.
