Town and country planning – Permission for development. On the proper interpretation of reg 9A of the Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications, Deemed Applications, Requests and Site Visits) (England) Regulations 2012, SI 2012/2920, if an applicant and the local planning authority agreed in writing that the 26 week period should be extended, the planning fee paid by the applicant did not fall to be refunded, even if the authority failed to determine the application within the extended period. Accordingly, the Planning Court held that the claimant's claim for declaratory relief as formulated was not made out.
