Local Validation Checklist

For all applications registered after 2 November 2015, the Council is using revised Local Validation Criteria for planning applications.

If you have any queries, please email planning@solihull.gov.uk or telephone 0121 704 8008.

The development management team need the right information to fully assess a planning application. Certain national requirements are mandatory, but local authorities have the discretion to include a local list of validation criteria. From 2 November 2015, the Council has revised its local validation checklist. In most circumstances, the list will only apply to non-householder projects, but please check before submitting a householder planning application.

The list is not intended to add any additional burden to development, but make it easier to assess proposals in a timely and consistent manner. There may be occasions where a case officer asks for additional information or clarification once an application has been submitted. The number of requirements increases with complexity and scale of the planning application, but all information provided should be proportionate.
