From 01 July 2012 some requirements set out in national policy will be included on the 1APP form. From that time, paragraphs 35 to 39 of the document below will become operational. The determination period set out in Article 22, in respect of applications for planning permission, will not begin until all the information is supplied as requested by the published form at the time of submission.
l A Guide to the Standard Application Form ('1APP') and Validation of Applications
Different types and scale of application will require different levels of information and supporting documentation to be submitted. In addition to national statutory requirements for validating applications, local planning authorities are encouraged to adopt a list of additional requirements (local list) to suit their individual circumstances and to formally adopt as part of the process of validating applications.
National and Local lists
The national list sets out statutory requirements for applications. These requirements include the completed application form; the correct fee (where one is necessary); ownership certificates; agricultural holdings certificate; Access Statement (where one is necessary); the location plan; other plans and drawings or information necessary to describe the subject of the application and environmental statement (where one is necessary).
The local list comprises additional information which local planning authorities can require to validate an application.
At present, Carmarthenshire has not yet adopted a Local List.
