Council asks what information people think planners could consider.

Daventry District Council is reviewing the types of information it requires as part of planning applications.

When people submit planning applications they are required by the Government to provide certain information, depending on the type of application, in order for it to be properly understood and considered.

Without the necessary information the application cannot be officially registered.

In addition to these national requirements, Daventry District Council may also require additional information depending on the type of application. Such information is known as ‘the local requirements’ and a list of these is published on the Council’s web site.

Councillor Steve Osborne, chairman of the planning committee, said: “We are embarking on a review of this list to take into account new legislation, changes to planning policy and to ensure that applicants are asked for information that relates to the size and complexity of their planning application.

“We would encourage people to have a look at the proposed revisions on our website and let us know what they think. When the consultation has ended we will examine all the comments before publishing the updated list of requirements.”

The consultation runs until Friday, September 27, at 4.30pm and people can see the proposed changes and comment at Daventry District Council.

Comments can be made either online or by emailing planning@daventrydc.gov.uk. Alternatively write to Keith Thursfield, Development Control Manager, at Daventry District Council, Lodge Road, Daventry, Northamptonshire, NN11 4FP.
