Validation Checklists for Planning and other Applications – Adopted December 2012

To see more about how we record and store your information please see the Council’s privacy notice.

These documents set out the requirements for different levels of information, supporting documentation and pre-application discussions for various categories of application. There is a summary of validation requirements, individual validation checklists for each category of application e.g. householder, advertisements, and wind turbines.

There is also contact information for HBC and external consultees.  You may wish to consult these before commencing with a development to ensure that you have all the necessary information. This is especially recommended for wind turbine applications.
In December 2013 the Government introduced further pre-application consultation requirements for certain wind turbine applications which can also be found below.

On 3rd September 2020 Lancashire County Council cabinet approved the LCC Education Contribution Methodology, updated in line with latest DfE guidance.

The methodology can now be found via this link on the Lancashire County Council website on the Planning Obligations for Developers pages.

From the 3rd September 2020 this will be the document that education contributions are based on. Please refer to this if you are contemplating a large housing development.
