The Council has recently adopted a Local Validation List (LVL) which will be used in the validation of all applications from 1st June 2020 onwards. The LVL (v1.5) is available as a pdf (PDF, 658KB).
If you would like advice regarding which documents for the LVL are necessary for your planning application, then you should seek pre-application advice.
