Planning Validation Requirements

We check your application to ensure you've provided the required information. From this, we identify your application as either 'valid' or 'invalid'.


This means we've received all the correct information and have passed your application to a planning officer to assess.


This means we haven't received all the information we need to process the application. We will send you a letter advising what information is missing, and allow 28 days for you to submit it. If we don't receive the requested information within this time, we will withdraw the application.

If you have not received an acknowledgement letter, or an invalid letter, within two weeks of submitting your application, please contact our Planning Support Team at
