This Welsh Government consultation proposes to retain the current planning fee structure as set out in the 2015 regulations in the short-term and increase all planning fees by around 20%. In addition, to support Local Planning Authorities when determining applications for certificates of appropriate alternative development, they propose to introduce a fee of £230 per application.
In the longer term, Welsh Government aim to consider whether there is a need to reform the method of charging planning fees for supporting the cost recovery process.
