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
