Local Lists 

North Yorkshire Local List Planning Applications

Selby District Council is pleased to announce the introduction of the new North Yorkshire Local List for the validation of planning applications.

This document has been prepared in conjunction with the majority of the North Yorkshire authorities and will provide a single standard for the submission of documentation to make a planning application valid.

Selby District Council will formally be using the list as of Monday 6th June 2011. Up until this date, planning applications can be submitted using the existing local and national list. After the 6th June 2011, planning applications will not be validated if they are not accompanied by the correct local list or do not comply fully with its requirements.

Applicants should note that the validation requirements of the Council have changed since the collation of the following validation lists as a result of the publication of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) on the 27th March 2012.

The NPPF replaces the suite of Planning Policy Statements (PPS's) and Planning Policy Guidance Notes (PPG's) and now, along with the guidance in the Technical Guidance Note, and Policy for Traveller Sites, provides the national guidance on planning and as a result of Annex 1 paragraph 216 weight is afforded to emerging policies which in this Authority's case is the Core Strategy which is part of the Local Development Framework (LDF).

Applicants are therefore advised that in collating their applications submissions should refer to the policies in the NPPF and also those in the Core Strategy in terms of the Design & Access Statements and the technical reports forming part of the application as well as the Regional Spatial Strategy and the 2005 Selby District Local Plan. The Council will be reviewing the Validation Lists in due course, but they are available below to assist in application collation only at this time.

Application Forms and Guidance  

The following application forms are available. From 06 June 2011 planning applications will not be validated if they are not accompanied by the correct local list or do not comply fully with its requirements.

If you do not send all the information we need your application will be deemed invalid.

3. View Existing Planning Applications (weekly lists)

You can view existing applications online using Public Access.The service has a number of facilities including the ability to:

  • View applications registered at the Council  
  • View associated documents including Application Drawings and Attachments

4. Comment on a Planning Application 

You can comment on individual applications online using Public Access. In the case of a householder application, please be aware that should the applicant appeal against any decision made by Selby District Council and choose the Householder fast track process, you will not be allowed to make any further comments at that time.

Therefore, your letter needs to cover all the points you wish to raise at application stage for the inspector to consider your points. If the applicant chooses not to go down the fast track route, you will be notified of any appeal and will be allowed to make further comments at that time.
