Further Evidence by POS of Reduction in the Submission of Planning Applications and Fee Income

The Planning Officers Society (POS) has added further responses to its previous analysis of the reduction in the number of planning applications and also included statistics on reductions in fee income. 65 local planning authorities have now provided data. Whilst the average drop in the number of applications received is 18.8% they range from 40% to an increase of 1.1%. For fee income the average reduction is 16.3%, ranging from a massive 50% to an increase of 27%.

    EC Harris warns that the situation will only get worse, and may demand government intervention.

    “As most 106 contributions were from residential developments,” it says, “it is expected that the value of contributions will fall below £2bn [from around £9bn] for the next few years as more schemes fail to get started. It is likely that central government will be asked to fill the funding gap for the local authorities.”
