Validation timescales

As of 23 March, we are processing applications from the following dates:

  • Household, full, outlined and reserved matters: 21 March 2023
  • Discharge of conditions: 20 March 2023
  • Pre-applications: 23 March 2023

We will notify you as soon as your application has been validated.

New planning applications, once validated, are normally uploaded to our online planning register within 5 working days. Once published, it is possible to: 

  • Find all drawings and documents related to any live application, including comments from other consultees. 
  • Comment on any live planning application. 
  • View the details of some historical applications. For older applications, we usually offer a historic file request service, however this service is temporarily suspended. We apologise for any inconvenience. 
  • Print or download a weekly list of applications received or decided, by parish. 

We process planning applications once we have received all the documentation required, as listed in our Local Validation Checklists. We are a very busy service, processing 6,390 planning applications between April 2020 and March 2021, so please bear with us as we work through your validation documents and process your planning application.
