Detail of outcome
This document is a summary of the responses made to the consultation on proposed changes to the planning application fees regime which ran from 15 November 2010 to 7 January 2011.
This consultation paper seeks views on proposed changes to the planning application fees regime which would decentralise responsibility for setting fees to local planning authorities. We also propose to allow authorities to charge for resubmitted applications and to set higher fees for retrospective applications.
Proposals will help to reduce the subsidising of planning applications by local taxpayers. If accepted and approved by Parliament, the changes would be implemented from April 2011, with a 6-month transition period until October 2011.
