Planning application fees

Planning fee increase effective from 6 December 2023

Legislative amendments to increase planning application fees have now been formally "made" took effect on 6 December 2023.

Amongst these changes are:

  • an increase in planning application fees by 25% across the board, which rises to 35% for major schemes based on the legislative interpretation of 'major development'
  • the provision for a 'free go' on application resubmissions has been removed, but individual applications that were already eligible for a free resubmission before 6 December 2023 will remain.
  • an annual rise in application fees linked to inflation (capped at 10% every April from 2025 onwards)

How much will the fees be?

The Planning Portal has published a guide to fees for planing applications and also has a fee calculator

These new regulations amend the Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications, Deemed Applications, Requests and Site Visits) (England) Regulations 2012 (S.I. 2012/2920) ("the 2012 Fees Regulations").
