Validation of applications

The application validation process makes sure that planning applications meet certain legal requirements and that we have enough information to allow us to make an informed and efficient decision on your application.

Other parties, such as neighbours, local communities and consultees must also have adequate information to be able to comment on an application.

Therefore, we place a strong emphasis on the successful and early validation of applications. The guidance document and checklist below will help you to submit a valid application first time. This will reduce the overall processing time and could mean that a decision on your application can be made sooner.
