To ensure the service provides full cost recovery for the benefit of Herefordshire residents. The removal of the exemption category ensures the service is being funded by the applicant. In addition, the statutory planning application fees were raised by 20% in January 2018 whereas the council only increased pre-app fees by 10% in April 2019. Therefore this additional increase ensures consistency with the uplift in the national planning fees as well as achieve full cost recovery.
