Planned maintenance of payment systems

Due to planned maintenance you will not be able to make payments to us from 10am to 1pm on Thursday 28 September 2023. Please do not fill in any forms that take payments, do not use the automated payment phone line and do not call us to ask that we take a payment during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Planning fees

In order to submit a valid planning application, in most cases, a fee will be needed.

The fee calculator helps you work out the cost of any particular planning application ranging from a simple householder development to large scale proposals such as housing schemes or industrial estates.

If applying online through the Planning Portal you can pay using a valid debit card.

Use the planning portal fee calculator

For paper based submissions, we no longer accept cash payments for planning applications. 

Payment can be made by credit or debit card by telephoning 01708 432700.
