The Government has increased planning fees by 15%.
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 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.
The new fee schedule is available to download.

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.
