Planning Application Checklists
Emerging Local Validation Checklist
A review of the Council's validation checklists has taken
place in order to take account of recent changes in Government
legislation that have affected the national requirements,
particularly the changes to the circumstances in which Design and
Access Statements can be required. It has also been updated with
references to the
National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
The draft document has been approved for the purposes of
public consultation, and in the intervening period until
a Local Validation Checklist is adopted by the Council, to inform
decisions regarding the validation of planning applications.
