Paying for a Planning Portal Application

When you make a planning application via the Planning Portal you will need to pay the application fee directly to the Portal (not the Council) otherwise the application will not be released to the Council.

Please note : There is an additional £25.00 (inclusive of VAT) transaction fee charge made by the Planning Portal for online applications and this will apply to any transaction which is £60.00 or above. All free applications and all applications where the fee is less than £60.00 will not incur this charge.
