Schedule of Proposed Fees and Charges 2023/24

During the Budget Setting Cycle the Council reviews its Fees and Charges for various facilities and services it operates.


Included is the schedule of charges in respect of the assets and services which fall under the responsibility of this Committee, and the Committee is requested to review and approve or amend, as necessary.


The Committee received and considered the report and verbal update of the Town Clerk/CEO concerning the Council’s charges from April 2023.


Although, the Policy, Governance & Finance Committee had provided parameters at its previous meeting endorsing an inflationary increase, Members were reluctant to agree an increase of 10% across the board with the figures presented to them. However, being  acutely aware of the increase of costs nationally, accepted that if an increase was not applied then it would create an impact on other areas of the overall council  budget.


It was advised that sports facilities are and will continue to be subsidised by the council even with the proposed 10% increase. and if fees were not increased then this would only mean that higher running costs would be passed on to residents through the Council Tax precept.




1.      That, the report be noted and,

2.      That, the Town Clerk reviews fees as part of the whole council budget discussions later in the committee cycle.
