  • Planning Fees Increase from 22 November 2012
     
    The Government has increased planning fees by 15%.
     
    The new Regulations consolidate fee legislation dating back to 1989 and introduce new levels of planning application fees which have been up-rated by 15 per cent in line with inflation since 2008, as well as introducing a small number of new fees as a result of changes to primary legislation.
    A copy of the Regulations as approved by Parliament can be found here and further information can be found at the Planning Portal.

    The new fee schedule is available to download.

    For further guidance use the Planning Portal Fee Calculator or if you have any questions relating to fees, please contact us.

    Any application received by the Council since Thursday 22 November 2012  requires the new fee to be paid in order to be accepted as valid.
