Validation Local List

We use the 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.


Planning applications will not be validated if they are not accompanied by the correct local list or do not comply fully with its requirements.
