Fees in particular cases

2.  Where an application or deemed application is made or deemed to be made by or on behalf of a community council, the fee payable is one half of the amount as would otherwise be payable.

3.—(1) Where an application or deemed application is made or deemed to be made by or on behalf of a club, society or other organisation (including any persons administering a trust) which is not established or conducted for profit and whose objects are the provision of facilities for sport or recreation, and the conditions specified in sub-paragraph (2) are satisfied, the fee payable is £385.

(b)the local planning authority with whom the application is lodged, or (in the case of a deemed application) the Welsh Ministers, are satisfied that the development is to be carried out on land which is, or is intended to be, occupied by the club, society or organisation and used wholly or mainly for the carrying out of its objects.

4.—(1) This paragraph applies where—

(a)an application is made for approval of one or more reserved matters (“the current application”); and

(b)the applicant has previously applied for such approval under the same outline planning permission and paid fees in relation to one or more such applications; and

(c)no application has been made under that permission other than by or on behalf of the applicant.

(2) Where the amount paid as mentioned in sub-paragraph (1)(b) is not less than the amount which would be payable if the applicant were, by the current application, seeking approval of all the matters reserved by the outline permission (and in relation to the whole of the development authorised by the permission), the fee payable in respect of the current application is £385.

(3) Where—

(a)a fee has been paid as mentioned in sub-paragraph (1)(b) at a rate lower than that prevailing at the date of the current application; and

11.—(1) In relation to development within category 2, 3 or 4, the area of gross floor space to be created by the development must 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.

(2) In relation to development within category 2, 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 must be treated as being 75 square metres.

(a)where any of the buildings is to contain floor space which it is proposed to use for the purposes of providing common access or common services or facilities for persons occupying or using part of that building for residential purposes and for persons occupying or using part of it for non-residential purposes (“common floor space”), the amount of non-residential floor space must 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 to be created by the development;

(b)where the development falls within more than one of categories 2, 3 and 4 an amount must be calculated in accordance with each such category and the highest amount so calculated is the sum payable in respect of all of the non-residential floor space.

(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 5 to 12—

(a)an amount is calculated in accordance with each such category; and

(b)if any of the amounts so calculated exceeds the amount calculated in accordance with sub-paragraph (2) that higher amount is the fee payable in respect of all of the development to which the application or deemed application relates.

(5) In sub-paragraph (3), the reference to using the building for residential purposes is a reference to using it as a dwellinghouse.

13.—(1) Subject to paragraph 12 and sub-paragraph (2), where an application or deemed application relates to development which is within more than one of the categories—

(a)an amount is calculated in accordance with each such category; and

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations consolidate, with changes, the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications and Deemed Applications) Regulations 1989 (“the 1989 Regulations”) in so far as they apply in Wales and the Town and Country Planning (Fees for Non-Material Changes) (Wales) Regulations 2014 (“the 2014 Regulations”).

These Regulations provide for the payment of fees to local planning authorities in respect of:

(1) applications made under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (“the 1990 Act”) for planning permission for development or for approval of matters reserved by an outline planning permission;

(2) deemed applications for planning permission under section 177(5) of the 1990 Act;

(3) applications for a certificate of lawful use or development;

(4) applications for consent for the display of advertisements;

(5) certain applications under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development Order) 1995;

(6) applications for non-material changes to planning permission; and

(7) site visits to mining and landfill sites.

The main changes are:

(a)an increase in fees by approximately 15%;

(b)fees paid in respect of applications for planning permission or for approval of reserved matters are refunded if the local planning authority fail to determine the application within specified times (regulation 9);

(c)fees in respect of deemed applications are paid to the local planning authority rather than half to the local planning authority and half to the Welsh Ministers (regulation 10);

(d)fees paid in respect of a deemed application in relation to the use of the land as a caravan site are to be treated the same as other applications for the purposes of refunds (regulation 10(12)). Under the 1989 Regulations, such a deemed application was excluded from the provisions for refunds;

(e)fees are payable in respect of applications for consent, agreement or approval required by any planning condition or limitation, and any such fee is refunded if the local planning authority fail to determine the application within specified times (regulation 15);

(f)a fee is payable to the local planning authority on a revised application for approval of reserved matters where those reserved matters have previously been approved. Under the 1989 Regulations such an application was exempt from payment of a fee where conditions were met;

(g)where applications are made for planning permission, for approval of reserved matters or for certificates of lawful use or development which relate to land in the area of two or more local planning authorities, a fee is payable to each local planning authority (paragraph 8 of Schedule 1). Under the 1989 Regulations the fee was payable to the local planning authority in whose area the largest part of the land was situated.

Some minor and consequential drafting changes have also been made.

The 1989 and 2014 Regulations are revoked and there are transitional and savings provisions.
