Updated permit fees

We recently completed a review of our permit fee pricing structure following significant investment made to develop a new online application system. Following customer feedback, our online application system has created a more streamlined, digitally accessible platform enabling customers to navigate the application process more efficiently.

Our review has looked at the wider environmental marketplace, customer expectations and ongoing investment needed to meet customer requirements into the future including the introduction of an express service.

We are therefore changing our permit prices from 1 January 2023 and these are reflected in our new pricing structure which you can view here. This increase will enable us to continue to deliver a high quality service. If you have any questions or would like to speak to our team, please call us on 01623 637450 or email us at permissions@coal.gov.uk.
