Current questions - can you help?

Q I have a recurring problem with a local authority over the fees payable for temporary or mobile structures such as caravans, portable cabins and demountable buildings without footings and foundations. The nature of the permissions being sought is permanent, but the lifespan of the buildings is limited. I consider that they are a "change of use of land" and would fall under category 13 of the Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications, etc) (England) Regulations 2012.  However, the council is basing its fee request on floor area, arguing that category 2 of the regulations applies.  Do you have any knowledge or information that might be helpful? DH
