Re: Re: When can you carry out Exempted Dev?
Jackscout, what specifically are they charging for??
Has anyone ever refused to pay it? I have seen cases when development charges were questioned and the council have had to revise them downwards (ie including water supply charges when a well is being used, or foul water charges on a dwelling thats incorporating its own effluent treatment system)……
seems a bit sneaky from the council…….
i also have a theory re pre-planning meetings.
I have seen council officals being very positive towards development in preplanning meeting only for the development to be blown out of the water at decision. Leaving a very peed-off developer (who usually vents anger towards architect!)…. in my opinion the council want as much applications as possible to generate revenue, even to the point of being dishonest in preplanning meetings.
