Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which apply to England only, apply where the Secretary of State is authorised to recover costs borne by him in connection with unitary development plan, local plan or simplified planning zone inquiries or other hearings or examinations in public in respect of structure plans (“qualifying inquiries”).

The Regulations specify a standard daily amount which may be charged for each day the person appointed to hold it is engaged in the conduct of the inquiry or other hearing or is otherwise engaged on work connected with it. The amount is £467 per day in relation to qualifying inquiries opening on or after 18th December 2000. This is an increase of approximately 8.6% of the previous standard daily amount of £430, prescribed in 1999 (S.I. 1999/327).

These Regulations do not apply in relation to a person who is appointed to conduct an examination in public, under section 35B(1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, where that person’s remuneration and travelling or subsistence allowances (if any) are to be paid by the local planning authority. The Town and Country Planning (Costs of Inquiries etc.) (Examination in Public) (England) Regulations 2000 (S.I. 2000/2311) apply in such cases.
