Planning application advice and fees

Planning fees

Fees for planning applications are set by central government under The Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications and Deemed Applications, Requests and Site Visits) (England) Regulations 2012.

When you submit your application electronically via the National Planning Portal, you will need to make your payment on the Planning Portal via the methods available on their website.

For applications sent directly to us you can make a payment by debit or credit card - please call 0300 126 7000 during office hours.

You must send the relevant fee when you submit your application. If there is no fee, or it is incorrect, you will be notified. We will not process your application until we receive the correct fee.

Further information on planning fees can be found on the West Northamptonshire Council website.
