As part of our commitment to delivering the best services possible, we regularly consult with the community on a wide range of proposals and plans. We do this in a number of different ways, including the use of paper questionnaires, electronic consultation and public meetings.

Consultation on Planning validation checklist 15 June to 6 July 2017

We are updating our planning application validation checklist to meet new national and local planning policies and good practice. The validation process checks that the correct planning application documents and fee have been sent in before the planning application goes to the Planning officers to be decided.

The consultation runs from 15 June until 4pm on 6 July 2017.
