Planning application fees
Who sets planning application fees?
Planning application fees are set by Central Government for planning consent. The fees can be complex and are often dependent upon the nature of the development proposed. The fee calculator on the Planning Portal will help you to find out the cost of your planning application. It takes the form of a series of 'yes' or 'no' answers from which data is compiled to calculate the total cost of the application, ranging from a simple householder development, to large scale schemes, such as housing schemes, or industrial estates.
How do I pay?
Payment can be made by cash, cheque (made payable to Eden District Council) or by debit/credit card. Please remember to include your fee payment, otherwise your application will not be valid.
If you have any further queries about planning, there is always a Duty Officer available between 10am and 1pm, Monday to Friday. If you wish to contact a specific officer, see contact Development Management.
