A planning application fee is required for most planning applications, however some types of consent do not require a fee, for example listed buildings and planning permission for relevant demolition in a conservation area).

Planning application fees are set nationally and can be calculated using Planning Portal’s online tool.

However, there may be other costs associated with your planning application, including professional fees and developer contributions.

Depending on the size and complexity of the application, professional services which you may require could include architects, planning consultants, land surveyors and tree, ecology, archaeology, environment, drainage and highways specialists.

It is a good idea to consult the government’s national requirements and your Local Planning Authority’s Local Validation List to confirm what you might need.

Meanwhile, to get a better understanding of the planning expertise we can require and associated costs in relation to your specific project, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
