Planning application types and fees


The government sets the fees for statutory planning applications, and they do not charge VAT. You do have to pay VAT for discretionary planning advice services, which are set locally.

The fees vary depending on what kind of development you're planning and whether you have any permitted development rights. You can look through the list until you find the fee that applies to your proposal.

Or you can find the fee for an application by using the Planning Portal's online free calculator.

All planning fees are exempt from VAT.
