To make sure that the council, as the Local Planning Authority (LPA), can determine an application in a timely manner, and for the Lead Local Authority (LLFA) to be able to fulfil its role as a statutory consultee, sufficient drainage information must be submitted in support of an application.

Validation of application

In order to make sure the Lead Local Authority (LLFA) can make a timely response to the Local Planning Authority (LPA) and for the LPA to be able to determine the application, a local list will be used to validate any application.
