Local Validation List
5. Legal Background:
The National Planning Policy Framework states at Paragraph 193 that:
"Local planning authorities should publish a list of their information requirements for applications, which should be proportionate to the nature and scale of development proposals and reviewed on a frequent basis. Local planning authorities should only request supporting information that is relevant, necessary and material to the application inquestion."
The need for a Local List is set out in the following legislation:
The Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015 Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013
