Bromley Council Consultation on planning requirement changes – have your say by 22 July 2015

Local list of information requirements – consultation

Bromley Council  are asking for your comments on the revised local list of validation requirements for planning applications.

They  have reviewed our current local list of validation requirements for planning applications in line with national guidance and have updated the list and are now consulting on the revisions to the local list of information requirements and would welcome your views on the changes.This consultation is open for 8 weeks until 22 June 2015.Further information

The review has led to minor changes to items already on the list by way of making requirements clearer for applicants and ensuring that the most up-to-date policies are referenced. The revised list also introduces some additional requirements for non-householder applications to ensure that proposals meet current legislative and policy requirements, are capable of delivering high quality design and are addressing sustainability polices.

Furthermore by requiring applicants to submit certain details as part of the planning applications for major and/or complex and sensitive proposals, it is possible to prevent the use of conditions requiring further submissions which will reduce timescales for implementing permissions.

Additional requirements added to the local list include:

  • Clarification in respect of Design and Access Statements
  • Large scale (1:20) plans to show sensitive or complex design details
  • Living roof details
  • Computer generated images for major proposals
  • Accommodation schedules for all new dwellings
  • Submission of construction logistic plans
  • Submission of landscape proposals
  • Clarification in respect of information required for Lifetime Homes and wheelchair units
  • Material samples for appropriate schemes
  • Sustainability statements
