Planning Permission

Question for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

UIN 12157, tabled on 8 June 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what representations he has received from local authorities on the adequate level of a fee for applications for prior approval through permitted development.

Responses to the consultation recognised the need for local authorities to consider any implications of the permitted development right by way of a prior approval application. This will require local planning authority resources and should therefore be subject to an appropriate fee.

We aim to publish an Impact Assessment on the measures as soon as possible in accordance with the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015. It will be a full regulatory Impact Assessment.
