EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Infrastructure Planning (Fees) Regulations 2010 (“the 2010 Regulations”) and are intended to provide clarity about the days that can be counted in calculating the final payment for the handling of an application for development consent. Regulation 2(2) provides that any day during the examination period is a relevant day, subject to the stated exceptions. The amendment is not intended or expected to require any change to the current practice, in relation to application fees, of the Planning Inspectorate. That practice is consistent with that of the (now abolished) Infrastructure Planning Commission which also operated under the 2010 Regulations, and with the Secretary of State’s guidance on the 2010 Regulations.

No Impact Assessment has been prepared for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is expected.

(2)

S.I. 2010/106. As amended by S.I. 2012/635.

(3)

S.I 2009/2263. Regulations 16 and 17 are amended by S.I.s 2012/635 and 2012/787.
