Local Validation List Consultation
The council is updating their local validation list which sets out the validation requirements for planning applications:
Section One - Compulsory national requirements
These documents must be submitted in order for the application to be made valid.
Section Two - Useful tips and FAQS
This information is provided to assist in making the submission
Section Three - Local Validation Requirements
Depending on the application type proposal, the documents in this section should be submitted in order to allow the Council to fully assess the proposals
The Local Validation List seeks to make it easier or applicants to know what documents and information is required for their planning applications. Once adopted, it will replace the previous local validation list.
We would like to hear your comments on the draft Local Validation Checklist
The draft checklist can be found at the bottom of this page. The consultation will run for 6 weeks and will close on 11 November 2022. The previous checklist can be found here

Over the previous two years the Development Control Service at Cannock Chase District Council has been handling a high number of planning applications. There is consequently significant pressure on staff resources at a time when the authority will be recruiting to fill key posts that will become vacant. In the meantime there will be a delay to the registration of planning applications and their allocation to case officers. A delay will also be experienced in providing a response to enquiries to Development Control. We apologise for any delay or disruption this may cause and will address the matter of service capacity as soon as possible.
Should your planning queries be relatively straight forward and related to Permitted Development, you may be able to find answers to your queries by visiting the Planning Portal.
Should you wish to obtain advice in respect to extensions to dwellings you can find generic advice in Appendix A and Appendix B of the Council's Design Guide by visiting the Supplementary Planning Policy Documents page on the Council's website and clicking on the Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document heading - Supplementary Planning Policy Documents | Cannock Chase District Council (cannockchasedc.gov.uk)
