Review of Fees and Charges 2022/23

Decision Maker: Health and Housing

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Resources submitted a report seeking member approval on proposals to increase this Committee’s fees and charges with effect from 1 April 2022.


Members were reminded that the Council’s fees and charges are reviewed on an annual basis.


The report noted that:

·         The proposals were the first stage in the review of this Committee’s budget for the forthcoming 2022/23 financial year.


  • The Council’s latest budget forecast allows for a 3% inflationary increase in the level of income raised from fees and charges and the review aims to increase budgeted income for 2022/23 by this amount as a minimum.


·         Following discussions between financial services, heads of service and budget holders a proposed set of fees and charges for implementation from 1 April 2022 had been produced for this Committee for members to consider.


Most fees proposed were based on applying a 3% inflationary increase and applying rounding up or down as appropriate to minimise any problems with small change.


·         Some proposed fees were set on a different basis to a 3% increase. These were Mobile Homes Fit and Proper Person Test fees, the Clitheroe Cemetery Memorial Bench fee and fixed penalty notice charges. These were explained in the report.




1.    Approve the 2022/23 fees and charges proposed for this Committee in Annex 1 of the report, for implementation from 1 April 2022.


2.    Approve to change the Clitheroe Cemetery Memorial Bench fee with immediate effect to “At Cost – Materials and Labour”.
