Planning and Building Control

The Government after  consultation response on permitted development rights, is introducing a £96 fee for the prior approval application required for larger home extensions under Schedule 2; Part 1; Class A of The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 (as amended).

The £96 fee will apply for applications submitted from the 19th August 2019 onward.

The planning portal have updated our fee schedule accordingly and, later in the year, when they add this prior approval type to 1App, the fee will be included.

With the permitted development right in regard to larger home extensions being made permanent and latest government statistics showing that over 70 per cent of all prior approval applications are of this type, this sets the fee in line with similar procedures for other permitted changes of use.

Please note that from the 17th January 2018, Planning fees will be increased by 20% in accordance with Government legislation. For all fees please follow link to the Planning Portal and a link to the fee calculator:
