Pre-application advice and guidance

7. Validation checklists

These checklists are provided to help you identify whether you’ve got all the information required for your proposal.

They also help to reduce delay in determining the outcome of a planning application.

Main validation checklist

The latest version of the Validation Checklist was adopted by us on the 22 April 2019. This was following a 6 week public consultation period where the changes to the documents were advertised on our website. The feedback we received for this consultation was taken into account before the document was formally adopted.

The Government has provided guidance on validation checklists. It details the national information requirements that became mandatory and applied to all planning applications from 8 April 2008.
