We are asking the community for their views on the Draft Isles of Scilly Local Validation Checklist.
Since 2008 local planning authorities have been required to publish a list of information they require to “validate” the planning applications they receive. A validation list has 2 components:
- The national requirements, such as the application form, fee and certificates
- Specific local validation requirements known as the “Local List”
The Government requires local planning authorities to review the “local list” every 2 years. In addition, there continue to be a significant number of changes to planning legislation, policy and guidance. It is therefore considered timely for the Council of the Isles of Scilly to adopt local validation requirements, especially given the current status of the emerging Isles of Scilly Local Plan, which is expected to be submitted to the Secretary of State in the autumn of 2019.
The proposed Local List is open to public consultation for a 6 week period from 2 August 2019 to 5pm on 13 September 2019.
Full details on the local validation checklist and information on how to respond can be found on the consultation webpage:
