A new planning application fee rule has been introduced by Government which increases Medway Council’s planning fee but also specifically a planning fee will now be required where permitted development rights have been removed, i.e. St. Mary’s Island.
Previous applications for things like sheds did not require a fee to be paid (if planning permission was only required because the permitted development rights have been taken away). This will no longer be the case from mid January 2018.
Medway Council aim to determine planning applications within 8 weeks for minor items and 13 weeks for major applications.
All planning applications require certain information. For information and guidance www.medway.gov.uk.
