Local Validation Checklist for the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service

Since 2008 local planning authorities have been required to publish a list of information they require to “validate” the planning applications they receive.

In addition to the statutory national information requirements, the Local Validation List sets out the additional documents that the Local Planning Authority will require applicants to provide (depending on the type and scale of application) in order to make their planning application valid.

The existing Local Validation List is now out of date and following a review we are now consulting on a revised List to be used in the validation of planning applications.

The Consultation Process:

The proposed Local List is open to public consultation for a 6 week period:

From 7 January 2020 until 5pm on 18 February 2020.

You may comment upon the draft list by email or put your comments in writing.

After the consultation period, the Local Planning Authority will consider all comments received and amend the Local List as appropriate. Once approved this will form the basis on which planning applications are deemed valid by the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service.

You will receive an acknowledgement of your correspondence either by email or post and your response will be held on our database for audit purposes.

Please note, although it will not be possible to respond to specific comments all comments will be recorded and fed into the consultation process.

After the consultation period, the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service will consider all the comments received and amend the existing Validation Guidance as appropriate. The final proposal on the validation of planning applications will then be taken to the two Councils’ Planning Committees for approval. Once approved this will replace the existing Validation Guidance and will form the basis on which applications are deemed valid by the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service.
