Local Validation Requirements Consultation - April 2019

In accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and its associated National Planning Practice Guidance, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority regularly reviews their local list for the purposes of validating planning related applications. The Authority's local list is set out in its Local Validation Requirements. This guide has been updated taking into consideration new local and national planning policies and is available for consultation purposes.  

Summary of changes:

  1. The revised document has been re-published to take account of changes in national, regional and local planning policy as applicable to the Yorkshire Dales National Park since the last publication in June 2017.
  2. 4.11 Occupancy restriction statement – updated to cover holiday lets.

This updated version will be available for a 6 week consultation period until 5 June 2019. If you wish to make any comments on the updated version please send them to before the end of the consultation period.

Please note that planning related applications will be validated in accordance with the existing 2017 Planning Local Validation Requirements until the updated version has been consulted upon, amended where required and published. Once published it will replace the 2017 version and will be available on the Authority’s website.
