Planning fees and charges

Planning fees and charges from 17 January 2018 onwards

A 20% fee increase was introduced on the 17 January 2018 in accordance with The Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications, Deemed Applications, Requests and Site Visits) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2017. 

In most cases, there is a fee for submitting a planning application.

However for some planning consents, such as listed building and planning permission for a relevant demolition in a conservation area, no fee is required.

You can calculate the planning application fee required by using the online fee calculator on the Planning Portal.
