Full Application fee
An approving body may charge an applicant an application fee. Subject to regulations 5 to 9, of the Flood and Water Management Act, an application fee is to be determined as follows:
(a) £350 for each application, and
(b) an additional amount up to a maximum of £7,500 calculated by reference to the size of the construction area as follows:
(i) £70 for each 0.1 hectare or fraction of 0.1 of a hectare, for the first 0.5 hectare;
(ii) £50 for each 0.1 hectare or fraction of 0.1 of a hectare, from 0.5 hectare up to and including 1.0 hectare;
(iii) £20 for each 0.1 hectare or fraction of 0.1 of a hectare, from 1.0 hectare up to and including 5.0 hectares;
(iv) £10 for each additional 0.1 hectare or fraction of 0.1 of a hectare in excess of 5.0 hectares.
The Pre-Application fee will be charged at 33% of the Full application rate. By providing development construction area, application fees can be confirmed by the MTCBC SAB on email SAB@merthyr.gov.uk or by phone 01685 725000
NOTE: Where the applicant is a community council, the application fee is 50% of the rate as stated under regulation 4.
Where a SAB grants approval subject to a condition (irrespective of whether or not the approval is subject to any other conditions) it may charge a fee of £168 for each inspection.
Inspection regimes will be conditioned as part of the Full SAB application and will be agreed with the applicant prior to any construction work taking place.
