We base the fees on an average rate of £48 an hour. The above fees will cover the officer time to assess your proposal and provide a written response. The exceptions to this are the small scale and large scale major development. We will aim to arrange a meeting with you within 10 working days of your enquiry. This will also include relevant consultees and specialist officers. We then aim to provide written comments about your proposal within a further 10 working days. We will summarise the issues raised, recommendations and the general level of acceptability.
If you need more officer time than the fee suggests or you need a site visit, we will request more fees in advance. This will ensure that pre-application fees cover our costs and remain fair and reasonable.
