New Levels of Planning Application Fees Now in Effect
Published on Mon, 3 Aug 2009
The new Fees Regulations* came into operation today, 3rd August 2009, and have the general effect of increasing existing fees levels by approximately 15%.
This is the first increase in fees since May 2005 and is necessary to enable the Department to recover some of the costs directly incurred in processing planning applications.
