    Money Well Spent?

    Something which is not going to help those ‘January Blues’ is the confirmation just before Christmas that planning application fees are due increase by 20% on 17th January. This fee increase was made into law on 20th December 2017 and will come into force in less than 2 weeks.

    The fee increase applies to all planning applications, and any applications which are not validated by the 17th January will also be subject to the fee increase.
