In additional to the National mandatory documents you are also required to submit:
Floor plans – 2 copies of both existing and proposed floor plans drawn to a metric scale of 1:50 or 1:100.
Elevations – 2 copies of both existing and proposed elevations drawn to a metric scale of 1:50 or 1:100.
Sections – 2 copies of both existing and proposed sections drawn to a metric scale of 1:50 or 1:100.
Roof plans – 2 copies of both existing and proposed roof plans to a metric scale of 1:50 or 1:100.
Heritage statement (if applicable) – 2 copies of a Heritage Statement where the application site consists of a Listed Building or the site is included within a conservation area.
The National Planning Policy Framework requires an applicant to describe the significance of any heritage assets affected. This includes any contribution made by their setting.
The level of detail should:
- be relative to the importance of the assets,
- be enough to understand the potential impact of the proposal on the significance of the assets, and
- provide a clear justification (rationale) for the proposal.
As a minimum the Council’s historic environment record should have been consulted and the heritage assets assessed using appropriate expertise where necessary.
Where an application site has potential for archaeological interest a desk-based assessment would be normally enough but in some situations a field evaluation would be required.
Tree Survey/Arboricultural report – You will be required to submit 2 copies of a tree report/arboricultural impact statement if any part of the development is going to affect any tree. This includes trees within the curtilage of the site or an adjoining site. The report should be detailing the implications of the development on those trees.
Flood risk assessment (if applicable) – If any part of the proposed development will fall within flood zone 2 or 3 you will be required to submit the ‘Flood risk – assessment and information form’.
Ecology – If the proposed development may affect a protected species, such as a bat roost or slow worm, a preliminary ecological appraisal should be carried out. As part of the consideration of an application the Council must be satisfied that the proposal would not have an unacceptable impact on protected species.
