TCPA 1990, s 62(1) provides for a development order to be made to make provision as to the form and manner in which planning applications must be made, particulars of matters which are to be included in planning applications, and documents to accompany planning applications. That development order is the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015, SI 2015/595 (DMPO), which requires a planning application to be accompanied by certain material.
TCPA 1990, s 62(3) further provides that an LPA may require a planning application to include such evidence in support of a planning application as it thinks necessary. Any such requirement cannot be inconsistent with DMPO, SI 2015/595, and:

may require particulars of, or evidence about, a matter only if it is reasonable
