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 2023. These proposals were the first stage in the review of this Committee’s budget for the forthcoming 2023/24 financial year.


Policy and Finance Committee have guided Committees to consider a 10.1% inflationary increase in the level of income raised from fees and charges and the review aims to increase the budgeted income for 2023/24 by this amount as a minimum.  After applying this percentage increase, proposed charges have 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 2023 were produced for this Committee for members to consider and were set out in Annex 1 to the report.



1.    Considered and approved the level of fees and charges to be levied for this committee for 2023/24 as outlined in the report with the exception of the up to 1 hour car parking charge which was agreed at £1.30.


A meeting of the Car Park Working Group be reconvened as soon as possible.
