Planning (Wales) Act 2015

Section 54 – Applications to amend registers: power to make provision about fees

190.This section amends section 24 of the Commons Act 2006, which confers power on the Welsh Ministers to make regulations about applications to amend the register of common land and town or village greens.

191.The effect of the amendment is that fees may be payable not only to the person to whom the application is made, but also to the person who determines the application (if different), for example where an application is made to the commons registration authority but referred to the Planning Inspectorate for determination. The aim of this section is to allow for greater flexibility and targeting of fees, subject to secondary legislation and Assembly scrutiny.
