Report of Director of Resources - enclosed


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.


Members were reminded that:

·      The annual review of the Council’s fees and charges had been undertaken as part of the budget setting process for the forthcoming 2023/24 financial year.


·      The Budget Working Group met in August 2022 to consider in detail the council’s three-year budget forecast for the financial years 2023/24 – 2025/26.


·      In light of a considerable forecasted budget gap a number of recommendations were approved by this Committee at the September 2022 meeting, including that fees and charges for the 2023/24 financial year should be increased by the rate of the September CPI.


·      For this committee, a minimum 10.1% increase in fees and charges would generate additional income of £19,820 when compared to the current year base budget for those income streams included within the review.




Approved the proposed fees and charges as set out in Annex 1 to the Report.
