Application types and fees

Schedule of application types and fees for the Commons Act 2006.

Legal advice and guidance on applications

North Yorkshire County Council, as registration authority, is responsible for the administration of applications. Part of the registration authority's role is to decide on your application so it must remain impartial. Therefore, we are unable to offer specific advice on individual applications. This means you are responsible for both deciding which form is appropriate for the type of amendment you want to make and for completing the form. We recommend consulting the Commons Act 2006, the Commons Registration (England) Regulations 2014 and the Defra guidance. These can be found on the external links and resources page. Please consider taking independent expert advice, such as from a solicitor with experience in this area of law, if you need detailed advice. You may also be able to get help from organisations such as the National Farmers' Union, the Country Land and Business Association or the Open Spaces Society.

Please note that we will not accept photocopies of applications or applications submitted by email.

Copies of documentary evidence received with applications are non-returnable and are retained by us for future reference. It is not advisable to provide original documents you wish to retain for your own records.

An application may not relate to more than one update, i.e. separate forms are to be used for each individual proposed update.

Please refer to the external links and resources page to access application forms.

See the what happens to my application page for the various steps and timescales associated with an application.

See the fees below:

(Please note - should your application be referred to the Planning Inspectorate a further fee will be incurred)
