Consultation on Maldon District Council Planning Validation Requirements List (Draft) (2020)

Published on Friday, 21st February 2020

Local Validation Checklist - Public Consultation - 21 February 2020 until 5pm on 3 April 2020

The Strategy and Resources Committee on the 20 February 2020, recommended a six-week consultation on amendments to the local information requirements for the Validation of planning applications (local list).

Since 2008 local planning authorities have been required to publish a list of information they require to “validate” the planning applications they receive. This validation list forms two components, the national requirements, including the application form, the fee, certificates etc and secondly, specific local validation requirements known as the “Local List”. 

The Government requires local planning authorities to review the “local list” every two years. In addition, there continues to be a significant number of changes to planning legislation, policy and guidance. It is therefore considered timely for Maldon District Council to adopt amendments to the local validation requirements.

We are now asking the community for views on the Draft Maldon District Council Planning Validation Requirements List 2020.

The consultation runs from 21 February 2020 until 5pm on 3 April 2020.
