Changes to planning application fees

The Government has given the green light to increase planning application fees by 20%.  This increase will take effect from 17 January 2018 and any application not validated before this date will pay the new amounts.

Non-residential applications rise from £385 to £462 per 75 s.q.m and the upper threshold will rise from £250,000 to £300,000 – the maximum fee for non-residential development.

This will make clients with marginal sites more difficult to convince, especially as many think they get a refund if consent isn’t granted!
