Paying For Planning Permission

Recommended Posts

As an idea to get around the delays, bureaucracy and downright corruption of our planning laws:

You pay for planning permission. And you pay the amount that an independent valuer says that it will increase the value of the land.

So if you want to put a mansion in a field go ahead, but if that increases the value of the field from £50k to £0.5m you pay £450k to the council.

As it is getting that sort of planning permission is like winning the lottery, why not make it fair.

Planning permission is already paid for.

It's called "Cozy Developer Slime / Idle Public Sector Layabout Interchange..."

Have you never been to Farnham?! Nice simple career path over here; Planning Officer 2-3 years - followed by filthy scumbag garden-grabber job at Arcad*a, for the rest of your life.

Simples.

C*nts, the lot of them....

Good job our MP is the new Minister for Culture. Bound to have a REAL close eye on this one. Err..... NOT!!

why pay the council £450k? you don't owe them anything.

...

only way to make it fair is to get rid of it.

Eeee I remember when planning permission was 'free' <_< It was funded from council tax receipts, ya know in't good old days before everything became an opportunity to extract money with menaces. <_<

Look up Development Land Tax which tried a variation of this.

Just go and talk to your friendly local councilor.

My friend put a mansion in a field - think you're allowed to do that without too much bovver, if the house is magnificent enough.
