Where the proposed fishing lake to be constructed is part of an aftercare condition attached to a permission for mineral extraction, a planning application fee would be charged under Category 9 (a) (fees category for mineral extraction) of Schedule 1, Part 2 of the Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications and Deemed Applications (Amendment) (England) Regulations 2008). The mineral planning authority may also charge a fee for site visits to monitor the mineral permission during the aftercare period.
