Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Resources & Deputy Chief Executive submitted a report seeking member approval on proposals to increase this Committee’s fees and charges with effect from 1 April 2024. The proposals were the first stage in the review of this Committee’s budget for the forthcoming 2024/25 financial year.


Policy and Finance Committee had guided Committees to consider a 4% inflationary increase in the level of income raised from fees and charges, and the review aimed to increase the budgeted income for 2024/25 by that amount as a minimum.  After applying this percentage increase, proposed charges had generally been rounded up or down to minimise any problems with small change.


Following discussions, the proposed set of fees and charges for implementation from 1 April 2024 were produced for this Committee for members to consider and were set out in Annex 1 to the report. The proposed fees and charges for this Committee would produce on average a 4.89% increase.



1.    Considered and approved the level of fees and charges to be levied for this committee for 2024/25 as outlined in the report with the exception of the adult (age 65 years plus) swim admission charge which was agreed to remain at £3.60.
