Planning Application Requirements - 2019 update 

In line with changes to the Development Plan we are revising our main Planning Application Requirements (PAR) document​, otherwise known as the ‘Local List’. 

The PAR provides information on what should be submitted with a planning application. It does not relate to other forms of consent including Prior Approvals, Prior Notifications, Certificates of Lawful Development, or Listed Building / Conservation Area Consent.

Main changes include:
  • ​new requirements: Masterplanning Statement, Infrastructure Sufficiency Statement
  • signposting to NPPF 2018 chapters or paragraphs
  • signposting to Local Plan (2018) policies
  • updates to trigger points
  • updated guidance & standards. 
The consultation runs from Wednesday 6 February to midnight Thursday 21 March 2019. Comments should be emailed to​


Infrastructure Delivery Plan

The Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) is a living document to which we invite infrastructure providers and commissioners and anyone else with relevant information to submit updates and amendments throughout the year. 

We will publish updated versions as appropriate (expected to be annual).
