Charges for pre-application planning advice for business development came into operation in the Peak District National Park this week.

The move comes after government cuts meant a reduction of more than 30 per cent in the authority’s budget between 2011 and 2015. The new charges include: between £100 and £1,000 for advice on open-market housing applications, depending on the number of homes; £45 per hour for advice on large developments, such as hotels, industrial or commercial schemes and £100 for most agricultural developments.

The full schedule is available on the authority’s website at
