Following our blog last week “Planning Application Fees to Go Up – Get Your Applications In!” (27th June 2012) the Government has now confirmed there will be an increase in planning fees in the form of “a one-off adjustment to up-rate fees in line with inflation, amounting to around 15% since 2008”. Contrary to speculation, these increases were not brought into force immediately and will be introduced instead through new fee regulations in the Autumn, expected to be around 1st October.

Speak to Rural Solutions about progressing any planning applications you may have now and avoid the fee increase.
