Our process for registering applications is known as validation, where the Planning Authority decides whether it has correct and adequate supporting information to understand and fairly decide a planning application.
The Government sought to standardise the information requirements for the different types of planning application by producing a national list of general requirements (such as a site plan). Each Planning Authority adds a list of local requirements (such as a flood risk or transport assessment). The information requirements may affect you as someone who is:
- applying for planning permission
- commenting on someone else's planning application
- professionally consulted on planning applications
- professionally assisting others in submitting planning applications
