Planning application fee increase

Regulations to introduce the 20% increase in planning application fees were made on 20 December 2017, which means that local planning authorities will be able to start applying the fee increase from 17 January 2018.

These Regulations will also introduce:

  • a new fee of £402 per 0.1 hectare for Permission in Principle applications
  • the ability for authorities to charge for applications for planning permission following the removal of permitted development rights through Article 4 directions or by condition
  • a fee of £96 for prior approval applications to permitted development rights that were introduced in April 2015 and April 2017
  • the option for Mayoral and Urban Development Corporations to charge for providing a pre-application service

Whilst the regulations provide full and comprehensive details of the fees and charges associated with planning applications, we will publish an updated summary fee sheet indicating the new charges by mid January.
