For the first time in almost a decade, it will cost more to appeal a Malibu Planning Commission decision.

The five-member City Council recently voted unanimously to raise the fee to $750 — a $250 increase.

According to the staff report, the fee has not changed since it was set in 2011.

A study conducted in 2015 concluded that approximately 32 hours of staff time are spent processing each appeal, and the existing $500 fee fell well short of covering that cost.
