Cost of planning applications to go up next month

Tynwald approved a rise of 5% from August 1st

The cost of submitting planning applications and lodging planning appeals will increase from next month.

That's after Tynwald approved a rise of five per cent, which will come into effect on August 1.

Costs are calculated on a scale depending on the complexity of the development.

The cost of submitting an appeal will increase from £150 to £165.

Environment Minister Richard Ronan said he believed the overall cost still represented 'good value for money' and would help the department towards meetings its budgetary targets.
