Local Validation List

What is a Local List?

This a checklist for applicants to ensure they submit the necessary information, depending on application type, to make an application valid. The list sets out exactly which plans and supporting information is required for each application type.  This will speed up the planning application determination process and give applicants more certainty about the costs and type of information required when making their planning applications.

The Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015 sets out a number of mandatory national requirements for planning applications, including application forms, fees, ownership certificates and location/site layout plans.

Paragraph 193 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires local planning authorities to publish a list of additional information requirements for applications, which should be proportionate to the nature and scale of development proposals and reviewed on a frequent basis. Local planning authorities should only request supporting information that is relevant, necessary and material to the application in question.  This is what has been set out in the accompanying LVL.
