Discretionary Fees & Charges

During the years of austerity there have been significant increases to the level of Fees and Charges, which have resulted in pressures across some income budgets. It was decided that the budget assumptions, agreed by Cabinet on 30th July 2019, would recommended a nil increase for 2020/21.

Services were requested to review the level of their charges to identify any opportunities to increase charges above nil inflation, in order to contribute towards bridging the budget gap.

This report provides Cabinet Members with the proposed fees and charges by service for 2020/21, and details of any fees and charges above the 0% general uplift.
