(a)an amount equal to the highest fee calculated in respect of each of the proposals; and

(b)an amount calculated by adding together the fees appropriate to all of the proposals, other than the fee referred to in sub-sub-paragraph (a) and dividing that total by the figure of 2.

PART IIISCALES OF FEES ETC

10.  Where, in respect of any category of development the fee is to be calculated by reference to the site area–

(a)that area shall be taken as consisting of the area of land to which the application relates or, in the case of an application for planning permission which is deemed to have been made by virtue of section 133(7) of the 1997 Act, the area of land to which the relevant enforcement notice relates; and

(b)where the area referred to in sub-paragraph (a) is not an exact multiple of the unit of measurement specified in respect of the relevant category of development, the fraction of a unit remaining after division of the total area by the unit of measurement shall be treated as a complete unit.

11.  In relation to development within category 2–

(a)the area of gross floor space to be created by the development shall be ascertained by external measurement of the floor space, whether or not it is to be bounded wholly or partly by external walls of a building,

(b)where the area of gross floor space to be created by the development exceeds 75 square metres and is not an exact multiple of 75 square metres, the area remaining after division of the total number of square metres of gross floor space by the figure of 75 shall be treated as being 75 square metres.

12.—(1) Where an application, or a deemed application other than an outline application, relates to development which is partly within category 1 and partly within category 2, the following sub-paragraphs shall apply for the purpose of calculating the fee.

(2) The amount of gross floor space which is to be created by that part of the development which is within category 2 (“the non-residential floor space”), shall be calculated and the sum payable in respect of that non-residential floor space shall be added to the sum payable in respect of that part of the development which is within category 1 and, subject to sub-paragraph (4), the result of the addition shall be the fee payable.

(3) For the purpose of sub-paragraph (2) where any of the buildings is to contain floor space for the purposes of providing common access or common services or facilities for persons occupying or using that building for residential purposes and for persons occupying or using it for non-residential purposes (“common floor space”), the amount of non-residential floor space shall be assessed in relation to that building, as including such proportion of the common floor space as the amount of non-residential floor space in the building bears to the total amount of gross floor space in the building.

(4) Where an application or deemed application to which this paragraph applies relates to development which is also within one or more than one of categories 3 to 12 an amount shall be calculated in accordance with each such category and if any of the amounts so calculated exceeds the amount calculated in accordance with sub-paragraph (2) that higher amount shall be the fee payable in respect of all of the development to which the application or deemed application relates.

13.  Subject to paragraph 12 where an application or deemed application, other than an outline application, relates to development which is within more than one of the categories–

(a)an amount shall be calculated in respect of each category; and

(b)the highest amount so calculated shall be the fee payable in respect of the application or deemed application.

14.  Where an application is for outline planning permission and relates to development which is within more than one of the categories the fee payable in respect of the application shall be £240 for each 0.1 hectares of the site area, subject to a maximum of £6,000, and on or after 1st April 2005, £260 for each 0.1 hectares of the site area, subject to a maximum of £6,500.
