Validation of Planning Applications
There are specfic requirements for each type of planning application. To help with the submission process we have a Planning Application Validation Checklist (PAVC). The PAVC is designed to help applicants to identify information required to be submitted in support of a planning application. Without this information, an application may be invalid which can lead to delays in dealing with it. There is a shortened version of the checklist for householders which should be referred to if you intend to apply for planning permission for works to a domestic property.
Each validation checklist includes a national list of mandatory information that must be submitted with every planning application and a local list of our won requirements. You must refer to both the sets of requirements before formally submitting an application (see downloads section).
Planning Application Validation Checklist (PAVC)
This new document has recently been adopted following a period of consultation in August/September 2017. All submissions of planning applications after the 1st of November 2017 must now be in accordance with this guidance.
Householder Planning Application Validation Checklist (HPAVC)
The document originally approved in June 2015 has recently been updated to reflect current legislation. The amended document has now been adopted and all submissions of householder planning applications after the 1st of June 2017 must now be in accordance with this guidance.
We will shortly be issuing checklists in relation to specific and more common applications, however in the meantime if you wish to discuss any of the above or ask for further information regarding a particular requirement please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively write to us at:
