Update: The consultation period has now closed and we are busily reviewing all comments and amending the Local List as appropriate with a view to present the amended list to the Planning Committee for approval. Further updates will be provided on our website.

We're asking for your views on our Draft Local Validation Checklist

Since 2008 local planning authorities are required to publish information checklists they use to 'validate' the planning applications they receive.

A validation list has two components:

  1. The national requirements, such as the application form, fee and certificates
  2. Specific local validation requirements are known as the 'Local List'

The Government requires local planning authorities to review the 'local list' every two years.  Since there continues to be a significant number of changes to planning legislation, policy and guidance, we believe it is now the right time to review our local validation requirements.

The consultation

The proposed Local List is now open to public consultation for six weeks from 1 March 2021 to 12 April 2021.

After the consultation period, we will be considering all comments received and amend the Local List as appropriate and present the amended List to Planning Committee for their approval.  Once approved, this will form the basis on which we validate all planning applications.
