Planning application validation checklists

Depending on the type of application, different documents will need to be submitted to make the application valid. If these documents are not submitted we will not be able to consider your application. We check each application against a list of required documents (known as the ‘local list’) and will request from you any documents that are missing. If these are not provided your application may not be accepted in which case you will need to re-submit your application.

These requirements have been adopted in accordance with Paragraph 044 (Reference ID: 14-044-20140306) of the National Planning Policy Guidance (NPPG) and were formally adopted on the 9 July 2021.

Once an application is valid and registered, the planning case officer will visit the application site to assess the proposals. For Householder applications, Officers are unable to make appointments for such visits but will make themselves known to the householder at the time of the visit if appropriate. If an officer is unable to view the site independently, they will make an appointment for a suitable time to visit.

For details of what you need to submit, select the type of application you want from the menu below. Click on the requirement within the application type for more information as to when it is required.
