Pre-validation checking service

What isn't covered by the service?

The pre-validation service is purely an administrative function. The advice that it provides simply reviews what has been submitted and whether additional information is needed. 

It does not: 

  • convey any acceptance as to the suitability of the proposed development from a planning perspective 
  • check the quality or detail of supporting professional reports and assessment being submitted 
  • remove the need for additional information which may need to be submitted subsequently as a result of the planning application process.
