Our blog at the end of March highlighted the current Scottish Government consultations, due to close on 22 June 2012.

One of the five consultation papers proposes an increase in the maximum planning application fee to £100,000. The amount and details vary depending on the type of development. New fees are proposed for renewal of planning permission although the Government states the changes in fees for business and commercial developments are designed to encourage expansion of SMEs.

We have prepared notes for different types of development and these can be accessed by clicking on the following links:

Other consultation papers include the extension and introduction of permitted development rights and the delivery of development and infrastructure. All five consultation papers can be accessed by clicking on this link:
