National and local validation requirements

For a planning application to be valid there are statutory and local information requirements which apply to each application type. These are commonly known as the National and Local Lists. National requirements apply to all planning applications in England. Local requirements are set by the Local Planning Authority having regard to local policies and constraints.  The link below is Babergh and Mid Suffolk’s joint Local Validation List (LVL) adopted 1 July 2017 and also contains the National Validation List.

LVL Part One Householder

LVL Part Two Minor Development

LVL Part Three Major Development

In addition a further guide for submission of householder development and relevant validation requirements is available Householder Submission Guide.  Further information on the National Validation requirements can be found under National Validation (Planning Practice External Link)
