Validation Requirements

The Town and Country Planning(Development Management Procedure)(Wales) Order 2012 (SI 2012 No.801) introduced on the 30th April 2012 makes it a requirement for applications to now be submitted on the ‘one-app’ form available from these offices or via the planning portal at

Below is the link to the Welsh Government Circular 002-12- Validation requirements which provides a checklist for validating your application:

Welsh Government Legislation

The new legislation and guidance also results in changes to our validation
procedures. The ‘Validation Requirements December 2010’ document  is currently being reviewed so as to fall into line with the new legislation and guidance and we aim to publish a new Validation Requirements document shortly. Please find below a link to the BBNPA Validation Requirements advice note:

Validation Requirements

In the meantime, the existing document  above (2010), can still provide useful guidance to applicants in assembling a planning application submission to the Authority. Much of the information requested will be needed by Officers in order for them to assess the application proposal and the document therefore remains available on this web site until it is replaced.

However, at this time the document should be viewed as guidance rather than validation requirements and anyone with queries in relation to the information which needs to be submitted with a planning application is advised to contact Planning Services:
