Updated Local Validation Requirements

When planning applications are submitted, we require supporting information. The information needed will depend on the type of planning application. In addition to national validation requirements, local requirements are specified in our ‘Local Validation Requirements’ checklist and published on our website.   

We are now consulting on updated Local Validation Requirements.

We would like to receive comments during the consultation period running from 10am on Monday 28 November 2022, to 5pm Friday 6 January, 2023. Comments received will be considered when drafting the final versions of the documents.  

You can read the consultation document and make comments using our online form on our website at www.barnsley.gov.uk/spd-and-local-validation-requirements

The document can also be viewed online or as paper copies at Library @ the Lightbox, 1 The Glassworks, Barnsley Town Centre, and at all branch libraries across the borough, during normal opening hours. You can access the internet for free at all libraries in Barnsley.
