Additional Fee Information



When using the list of current fees, please bear in mind the following:

All floor areas are gross and should be externally measured. Where areas exceed 75m2 or multiples thereof, any excess shall be treated as being a further 75m2.

Combined applications which relate to development in more than one category, (for example a change of use and works) the amount is calculated in accordance with the table and the higher of the amounts is the fee payable.

Mixed developments where an application relates to the erection of buildings partly for residential use and partly for other uses, the fee is calculated by adding the amount payable for the number of dwelling-houses to the amount for floorspace.
