Planning application fees vary according to local authority, and further according to the size and nature of the proposed development.  For example, in England, submitting an application for a new house build, or a conversion currently costs £462, with outline applications charged £462 per 0.1 hectares.  It is important to note that in many cases, an additional £20 processing charge applies to those submitting documents online via the Planning Portal.

Planning consultants tasked with composing or submitting a planning application often aim to charge a fixed fee, in order to allow the client to complete their project within a set budget.
