What do I need to submit?

There are specific requirements for each type of planning application.  To help with the submission process we have a Planning Application Validation Checklist (PAVC).  The PAVC is designed to help applicants to identify information required to be submitted in support of a planning application. Without this information, an application may be invalid which can lead to delays in dealing with it.  There is a shortened version of the checklist for householders which should be referred to if you intend to apply for planning permission for works to a domestic property.

Each validation checklist includes a national list of mandatory information that must be submitted with every planning application and a local list of our won requirements. 

You must refer to both the sets of requirements before formally submitting an application (see downloads section).

If you wish to discuss any of the above or ask for further information regarding a particular requirement please contact us via email at planning@burnley.gov.uk
