Rise in NI building planning fees

Northern Ireland’s Planning Service has revealed planning fees will increase by nearly three per cent next month.

The agency, which is carrying out a review of fees and charges, said a rise in fees will come into effect from 4 October.

The Planning Service hope to introduce a fees structure which will recover costs for permitted services in full.

This will help to reduce the burden on tax and rate payers for underwriting planning services and help the agency meet performance targets detailed in public service agreements.

Further proposals for changes are expected in the autumn and will be introduced next year.
