Newsflash: 20% increase in planning application fees from 17 January

8 January 2018

Long expected regulations to increase the fees for planning applications were made by the Government just before the Christmas break.

The regulations increase the fees by approximately 20% for applications submitted from 17 January, so if you are about to submit an application it would sensible to do so by 16 January if possible.

The regulations also introduce new fees for certain other applications, including those made necessary because the local authority has withdrawn a permitted development right by an article 4 direction or a planning condition.
