Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


This report provides the conclusion of the comprehensive review of fees and charges and proposes inflationary increases wherever possible for the 2022/23 and 2023/24 financial years. 


This review provides a consistent approach in setting, monitoring, and reviewing fees and charges across all services. This will ensure that fees and charges support Council objectives and are set at a level that maximises income generation. 



Cabinet considered the report and RESOLVED to endorse the increases in Fees and Charges as outlined in this report and recommend adoption to Full Council for immediate implementation.

Reasons for the decision:

The outcome of this review will support the Council in setting a lawful and balanced budget for 2023/24 and increase income in the current year2022/23. 

Alternative options considered:

Keep fees and charges as per current, however, this is not affordable in the short or medium term as the Council has an increasing budget shortfall.
