Revised local area requirements for planning applications

Closed 4 Dec 2013

Opened 9 Oct 2013

Overview

We have reviewed our local requirements for the validation of planning and other related applications to make sure they are relevant and appropriate to current policies and legislation.

Different types and scales of applications require different levels of information and supporting documents to be submitted.

Some changes have been made to bring the requirements up to date where changes have been made to planning legislation, policy and guidance.
