Icon for pdf Local Validation Checklist [1.01MB]

The Local Validation Checklist has been produced to inform applicants/agents of the type of documents and level of information required to validate a planning application or other similar consents. There are National Requirements and Sedgemoor District Council (SDC) has local requirements. SDC's local validation checklist reflects both the National Guidance on the validation of applications and the local requirements to meet adopted Core Strategy policies. To avoid confusion, this document will merge local and National requirements to enable use of this document as your one-stop shop, with the aim that your application can be registered as valid for determination by the Council first time round.

This Checklist is intended to provide applicants/agents with clear advice as to the planning information that is considered necessary to allow Case Officers and Statutory and Non-Statutory consultees to properly consider proposals being put forward and to ensure a streamlined submission process.

If you consider a required item is not applicable to your particular application then please contact our Development Management Team on 0300 303 7805 for further advice.
