Please note validation requirements may have changed since your last submission. You can find out more information about the changes on the Local validation checklists page.
Local validation checklists help us to insist on a more consistent standard of information to be submitted as part of a planning application which will help to enable a proper assessment of the application to be made. We can refuse to register a planning application until it receives all of the information set out.
Do I need planning permission?
We have organised our applications forms, guidance notes and fee information for all planning permissions into specific planning application packs. Each pack contains all the forms and information you’ll need to submit your application. If you want to check if you need planning permission, you can fill out our do I need planning permission form do I need planning permission form 435kb.
Planning application packs
If you are familiar with the planning process and know which pack you need you can view a list of all the available planning application packs and make your selection from there.
Planning application pack finder
If you’re not sure which pack you need you can use our planning application pack finder page which will take you through a series of questions to identify the correct pack for your project.
