Draft Local Planning Application Requirements-Part 1 document

North Somerset Council is consulting upon a draft Local Planning Application Requirements – Part 1 document. The purpose of this consultation is to make sure we only ask for information that is necessary and proportionate to describe applications received. This document is part 1 and sets out what supporting information is required to be submitted with applications. Part 2 is a separate document that relates to plans and drawings will be the subject of a separate consultation. Once adopted both parts 1 and 2 will be used to help applicants and the council to understand what is required in order for a planning application to be valid when submitted to us.

The only difference between Part 1, the subject of this consultation, and the existing Planning Application Requirements adopted in 2016 is that a new requirement for a ‘Community Infrastructure Levey (CIL) - additional information requirement form’ has been added at item 6.

This new item is required because on 18 January 2018 the CIL for North Somerset will start to operate. This means that CIL charges will be applied to any liable application that is decided on or after 18 January. To allow the council to charge the correct amount and operate the system properly additional information from the applicant is required at an early stage using the nationally prescribed additional information form which is provided by the Planning Portal.

The consultation runs from Monday 23 October 2017 until midnight Monday 20 November 2017. The easiest way to comment on the document is online. If you have difficulty accessing the document or would like it in another format please contact Jason Beale, Service Development Manager, on 01275 888811 or email planning.policy@n-somerset.gov.uk
