Local Validation Checklist Consultation

Local Validation Checklist Consultation

Following the public consultation process, Barrow Borough Council has now published its revised Local List of criteria which are used in the validation of planning applications. The level of information required depends upon the size and type of the application

The list was adopted on January 13th 2020. It will:

  • Provide greater certainty to applicants about the type and extent of information required as part of their application at the earliest possible stage
  • Enable BBC to have all the information it needs to determine applications in a considered and timely manner
  • Minimise the need to request additional information from the applicant at a later stage, making the determination process more efficient
  • Ensure greater consistency in registering and validating applications submitted to Barrow Borough Council.
