Q. There appears to be a quirk in the Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications and Deemed Applications) Regulations 1989 as amended. For new dwellings, the fee is £335 per dwelling. Where 50 or more dwellings are proposed, the fee would be £16,565. When you divide £16,565 by 50 it only comes to £331.30 per dwelling. Why is the figure for 50 dwellings not £16,750? A similar situation occurs with new floorspace. Can anyone provide clarification on which fee takes primacy for 50 dwellings and why there is this discrepancy? JP
