Planning Local Validation Requirements Consultation

This consultation closes on Sunday 28 July.

Local validation requirements set out the conditions and documents required for your planning application in Maidstone and Swale Borough councils.

We want your comments on our revised validation checklist (PDF 421KB). We've made the following changes:

  • removed the national requirements and replaced with an inserted hyperlink
  • clarified and improved the layout of the local requirements: ensuring all the relevant information is in a single section
  • added, biodiversity net gain benefits for new residential development

You can view our existing validation checklist here.

Taking part

Email your comments to by Sunday 28 July.

Please ensure you quote the relevant section headings, and page number with your comment, from our revised validation checklist.

Comments received after Sunday 28 July will not be considered.

What happens next

We will consider comments received and produce a final report setting out our responses. We will then publish an updated local validation checklist.
