Important: Recreational Access Mitigation Strategy tariff
As of 1 April 2023, the council will be applying a Recreational Access Mitigation Strategy (RAMS) tariff of £210.84 (RPI linked) per dwelling to permissions for development resulting in a net increase in residential units, including dwellings, student accommodation, care homes and hotels. The payment will be payable upon commencement of development and will be secured by a legal agreement in the form of a Unilateral Undertaking under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act submitted with the application.

It is important that all the required information is provided with the planning application particularly plans and other drawings to show what is proposed.
To check what supporting documentation is required with any application for planning consent see the validation requirements:
We will not unreasonably seek information if it is not essential for the determination of the application but we cannot register applications if key information is missing. If it becomes apparent after registration that an application is invalid and further information is required to determine it, we will invalidate it until the relevant information is submitted.
