Minutes:

The Committee received the report of the Director of Governance on fees and charges for 2015/16. The Licensing Team Leader advised the Committee that the fees and charges for all licences remained unchanged from 2014/15.

 

It was moved by Councillor R J Thompson, duly seconded, and

 

RESOLVED:        (a)     That the Fees and Charges for 2015/16 as set out in Appendix 4 be approved.

 

                            (b)     That Members approve the general principle that fees are set at an appropriate inclusive level, irrespective of VAT status, and that the VAT element within the overall fee level is then determined.

 

(c)     That Members approve the general principle that, unless the fee is set by statute, licensing fees will be set on a cost recovery basis.

 

(d)     That the Head of Regulatory Services is authorised to adopt fees at, or close to government directed levels without the need for further reporting, in cases where the Council is awaiting Government guidance and it has not been possible to set a fee level at that stage.

 

(e)     That the Head of Regulatory Services be authorised in consultation with the Director of Governance and the Director of Finance, Housing and Community to make minor adjustments to the fees and charges as necessary.
