Planning – Fees and How to Pay

How much does it cost to apply for planning permission?

It depends on what sort of application you’re submitting and what you propose to do. Fees are set by the government and were last reviewed 17 January 2018.

The Planning Portal’s Fee Calculator helps you work out the cost of an application and you can apply online there through their Financial Transaction Service or directly with us.

If you choose to apply through us:

Paying online

The council’s secure online payment system is available 24 hours a day. You’ll be taken to a secure website, to enter your credit or debit card details. To make sure the payment goes smoothly, the system checks your account details before completing your payment.

You can pay using a debit or credit card for all types of application once they have been submitted and you’ve received a Planning Application Reference (e.g. P18/S1234/FUL), by calling the Customer Services Team on 01235 422600.
