On 22 November 2012 Statutory Instrument 2012 No.2920, The Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications, Deemed Applications, Requests and Site Visits) (England) Regulations 2012 came into force.
A change introduced by the new Regulations directs that fees in respect of deemed planning applications be paid in full to the local planning authority rather than half to the local planning authority, and half to the Secretary of State.
With this change to the fee regulations, the LPA must ensure that the explanatory note which accompanies any enforcement notices states:
- the correct fee for the deemed planning application,
- that the full amount is payable to the LPA.
The LPA is also responsible for informing the Planning Inspectorate once the fee has been received OR if the fee has not been received by the deadline set.
