Steve Quartermain, Chief Planner at the Department for Communities and Local Government. has also stated that there will be an increase in planning application fees before the end of the year. Planning fees are expected to rise by 20% across all categories but will be ring fenced to planning departments in order to help improve the speed of decision making. We are monitoring the situation and encouraging potential applicants and developers not to delay submitting planning applications in an effort to beat the proposed price increase.
