New Levels of Planning Fees from 3rd August 2009
Published on Mon, 20 Jul 2009
The Department recently made the Planning (Fees) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2009 (S.R. 2009 No. 256) which amend the levels of planning fees as set out in the Planning (Fees) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2005 (S.R. 2005 No. 222 as amended by S.R. 2005 No. 505).
The new Regulations come into operation on 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.
