Local planning authorities are required to publish a list of information they require to “validate” the planning applications they receive. This validation list forms two components, the national requirements, including the application form, the fee, certificates etc. and secondly, specific local validation requirements known as the Local Validation Checklist.

The Government requires local planning authorities to review their local validation list every two years. In addition, the Council  adopted their Local Plan on the 3rd January 2019 and there have been a significant number of changes to national planning legislation, policy and guidance over the past two years. It is therefore considered timely to review the Council’s Local Validation Checklist in accordance with paragraphs 43 and 44 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and paragraphs 38-44 of the National Planning Policy Guidance (NPPG).

Further Information


We are updating the list of local validation requirements in accordance with the advice set out in the NPPF which require local validation lists to be reviewed by Local Planning Authority’s at least every 2 years.
