This guidance explains the scope of the new regime and the Welsh Assembly Government’s expectations of how it will operate according to good practice principles. The guidance does not give a definitive interpretation of legal planning requirements, which is ultimately a matter for the courts.

The Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications and Deemed Applications) (Amendment No 2) (Wales) Regulations 2006 SI 2006/1052 (W 108) came into force on 6 April 2006. The regulations allow local planning authorities in Wales to charge a fee for the monitoring of mineral and landfill waste sites.

Mineral and landfill operations involve a continuous process of development, over time in accordance with mineral and landfill waste permissions.

These permissions are subject to complex and technical planning conditions to mitigate the environmental impact of mineral and waste working. The objective of introducing these fees is to ensure that these permissions are monitored to a best practice level.
