Validation is the checking that an application has been submitted with the required information to allow processing to start. Please note that these validation requirements do not apply to householder applications. These can be found here.
Please download the Local Validation Checklist. This will explain how to find out what information you must submit with your application. Failing to submit the Local Validation Checklist and the Biodiversity Checklist will make your application invalid and we will not check or process it any further.
The Local Validation Checklist Download this first. It refers to associated documents.
These documents can be accessed via the links in the Local Validation Checklist or downloaded separately above.
What will we check at Validation Stage
What we will NOT check at Validation Stage
Applicants have a far greater knowledge of their sites than the Council does. It is therefore necessary, through the completion of the checklists for applicants to 'self-certify' that their applications have been submitted with the required information. It is not possible for validation staff to second guess whether the answers on the checklists are correct.
Submission of all the information requirements does not necessarily mean that we will not require further information at a later stage. It is for applicant’s to determine whether information is required according to the Local Validation Requirements. If it is later found, after validation, that required information has not been submitted the application is likely to be invalid and processing would have to start afresh.
