Planning Application Fees Increase

9th January 2018

Following our last update on the increase in planning application fees which can be read here, revised planning application fees will apply from 17th January.

Fees are increasing by 20% across the board with every local planning authority in England having agreed to use the extra money to upgrade planning department resources, although it is not clear how this will be monitored.

Fees are also introduced for:

  • Applications for Permission in Principle, (which can be submitted from 1st June),
  • Pre-application advice from Mayoral Development Corporations and Urban Development Corporations,
  • Applications where an Article 4 Direction is in place withdrawing permitted development rights, or where those rights have been removed by a planning condition.
