Most applications need a planning fee. The decision to charge for planning applications has been made by Parliament and therefore the scale of fees is the same throughout England and Wales.
You can calculate the fee of your planning application using the fee calculator available at the Planning Portal. There are some exemptions to fees such as:
- When the work is to provide facilities for someone who is registered disabled
- When the application is for Listed Building
- When you had an application refused and are resubmitting for a similar proposal on the same site within 12 months
- An application to vary one or more conditions on an approval made within 12 months
- When you withdrew an application for a similar proposal on the same site within the last 12 months
- When permitted development rights have been removed and the proposal would normally be permitted development
- Where there is an Article 4 Direction removing permitted development rights for certain works
If you are submitting your application online through the Planning Portal, you can pay when you apply. You can also pay using our online payment service. The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

In order to make sure you have all the relevant information with your application, we would strongly advise that you discuss your proposal with us prior to submitting the application. Pre-application discussions will also help to identify and resolve any issues which may come up during the applications and consequently mean a decision can be secured more quickly.
