Please use the online fee calculator for guidance on planning application fees.

You can also read the  guide to fees for planning applications in England (pdf / 101 KB).

When calculating fees:

  • there is no VAT on planning application fees;
  • for purposes of fee calculations, measurements of site area / floor space are based on external dimensions; and
  • if an application is for the replacement of any buildings / extensions that are to be demolished, no account is taken of the existing building in the fee calculation only the proposed new floor space.
