Local Information Requirements
The Local Information Requirements for Planning Applications document sets out the information required by the local planning authority to support a planning application. The document explains what plans and documents are required as part of a planning application to ensure that the Council can make transparent, well informed and robust decisions on planning applications in the public interest.
Please ensure you read this document and submit the required information when making a planning application. You must include all the necessary information with your application, or we cannot accept it.
As part of the Council’s Local Information Requirements, all planning applications for development creating new dwellings should include the submission of a Residential Standards Statement in relation to the Nationally Described Standards (NDSS) and accessible and adaptable (Part M4(2) accommodation requirements. A template has been created to assist with the provision of this information.
