Ascott-Under-Wychwood – Construction Underway

Ascott-Under-Wychwood

 

Works are well underway on our site in Ascott-Under-Wychwood for the construction of two dwellings on Land to the North-East of 51 High Street.

In association with Sobry Beak, BPA secured planning permission for two large detached dwellings with garages, which are now being built out on site.

We’re incredibly excited to see how this site progresses and to see the final result once works are complete.

We will keep you updated on this sites progress as we move rapidly towards completion.

If you have any questions about the development at Ascott-Under-Wychwood or have a similar scheme in mind, please get in touch today using the form below to see how we can help you.

Planning Fee Changes

Upcoming Planning Application Fee Increases

On the 26th September 2023, legislation to increase planning application fees was approved by both the House of Lords and Commons.

The legislation is to come into effect on the 6th December 2023.

The main changes to the fees are as follows:

  • All application fees will increase by 25%, rising to 35% for ‘major’ schemes.
  • Provision of a ‘Free-Go’ for application re-submissions will be removed entirely.
  • Introduction of an annual increase in application fees from April 2025 linked to inflation (capped at 10%).
  • The ‘planning guarantee’ time period will be reduced from 26 weeks to 16 weeks to be eligible for a refund of fees for non determination of any non-major applications (including householder development).

A full list of the amended planning application fees can be found on the Planning Portal website here.

If you have any questions about the proposed planning fee increases, or need to get a planning application submitted before these increases come into force, get in touch today to see how we can help you.
