Full cost recovery on Planning Fees

Comment 21st July 2010

At present Planning Fees only recompense Councils a proportion of the costs required in dealing with Planning & related applications. They should recover the total costs.

Why does this matter?

It is unjust that Council tax payers and general tax payers should have to subsidise developers who benefit from the increase in land & buildings' values arising from planning permission.
