Crossrail Act 2008


Section 12: Fees for planning applications

49.Section 12(1) allows the Secretary of State for Transport and the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, acting jointly, to make regulations about the fees to be charged by local planning authorities for the requests for approval of details under Schedule 7 to the Act to be submitted for Crossrail.

50.Section 12(2) and (3) set out what those regulations may cover.

51.Section 12(4) provides for the regulations to be made in the form of a statutory instrument subject to negative resolution procedure.

52.Section 12(5) disapplies any regulations made under section 303 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, which set out the fees normally charged for planning applications, in respect of any supplementary request for approval arising from a planning application deemed granted by section 10(1) of the Act. Special provision for Crossrail planning fees reflects the special planning regime applying to Crossrail provided by Section 10.
