Documents

Consultation description

The Planning Appeals Commission (PAC) is an independent body, set up under the Planning Act (Northern Ireland) 2011, which deals with a wide range of land use planning issues and related matters.  PAC makes decisions on appeals against Council decisions on a wide range of planning and environmental matters.

The Planning Fees (Deemed Planning Applications and Appeals) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015 (”the Regulations”) prescribe the fees to be charged for planning appeals and deemed planning applications. This consultation concerns amendments to the fees to be charged for planning appeals and deemed planning applications from 1st April 2023. It is considered that changes are required at this time as the planning fees charged by Councils and the Department for Infrastructure (DFI) have already been increased and the fees to apply to PAC should be keeping pace with these.
