Isle of Man planning application fee price rise proposed

People will have to pay more for Isle of Man planning application fees if proposed changes are approved by Tynwald this month.

The Department of Infrastructure also plans to increase charges for searches carried out by its Planning and Building Control Division.

If approved, the fees for planning applications would rise by 3%, which is about £5.

The changes will come into effect from 1 April if supported by Tynwald.

The fee for an application for the change of use of a building or land would rise by £10 from £230 to £240.

Howard Quayle MHK said: "The increases are in line with inflation."

The Department has already confirmed that planning and building control search fees paid by prospective buyers will increase on 1 April.
