CONSULTATION – Proposed revision of Local Information Requirements for the Validation of Planning and related Applications

In 2008 the government introduced changes to procedures involved in the validation of planning applications when they are initially submitted.  Local Planning Authorities in England now apply two sets of validation requirements when determining if an application is valid. One set is mandatory and is set out at a national level. The second set of requirements, which local planning authorities can adapt to suit their individual circumstances, are known as 'local requirements'.

Local Planning Authorities must ensure that their lists of 'local requirements' are reviewed every two years.  The Council is in the process of reviewing the local list of requirements.

The consultation period ends on 28 December 2021.

Please make any comments on Test Valley’s proposed revised Local Requirements list either by email to or in writing to Planning and Building Service, Beech Hurst, Weyhill Road, Andover, SP10 3AJ.

All comments received will be considered prior to confirming and publishing the revised Local Requirements list.  

The current Description of Local Requirements list can be viewed on the Council’s website at  or at the Council Offices at Beech Hurst, Andover and at Former Magistrates Court, Romsey
