Decision details

Discretionary Fees & Charges 2022/23 for Consultation

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Consideration was given to a report of the Cabinet Member for Finance and Corporate / Chief Finance Officer which sought approval of a consultation period for the proposed Discretionary Fees and Charges for 2022/23, including the statutory and other exemptions.


Alternatives considered

To not review or increase our fees and charges. This would potentially reduce the income available to the Council and make it more difficult to achieve a balanced budget.



1.    That the updated Discretionary Fees and Charges for 2022/23 be approved as a basis for consultation.

2.    That the charges exempt from the general 2% increase, as set out in paragraph 4.3 of the submitted report, be approved.

3.    That the introduction of the new charge for the webcasting of funeral services as detailed in section 4.4 of the submitted report be approved for consultation.


Reason for resolution

The fees and charges in this report have been proposed by each Directorate, taking into account the 2% general uplift in Discretionary Fees and Charges agreed at Cabinet on 27th July 2021.
