    Planning Application Local Validation Guidance Update pdf icon PDF 98 KB

    Additional documents:

    Minutes:

    Mr Jon Allinson presented the Planning Application Local Validation Requirements document which had recently been reviewed, as required every two years.  This document sets out the requirements for a valid planning application and discussion took place around the contents.  Mr Allinson explained that there had been very minor amendments made to the document which were updated telephone numbers, web addresses and policy references.  As the changes were minor a full consultation process was not required.

     

    Comments were made by some members about the importance of assessing applications in accordance with local and national policy, including the importance of design considerations.  Also, comments were made about the future requirements of certain documents that should be included when this document is to be fully reviewed.

     

    RESOLVED: That the Planning Committee approve the revised Local Validation Guidance and approve its adoption for publication on the Council website with immediate effect.
