17/00141 - Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste Fees and Charges for Highways Acitivities 2018-19

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Highways & Transportation team within HT&W make charges for a range of services provided to a variety of utilities, consultants, businesses and to a lesser extent, members of the public. It is proposed to increase fees in line with recent council tax increases, unless fees are not covering reasonable costs where a further increase has been proposed.


As the economy continues to recover there is an increased demand to provide services and advice to businesses such as developers, utility companies, consultants and legal establishments. To retain fees and charges at current levels will result in services being subsidised to the detriment of core frontline operations.


As Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste, I agree toamend fees and to amend fees and charges for 2018/2019  and  to delegate authority to  the Director of Highways, Transportation and Waste to amend such changes up to a maximum of the prevailing Retail Price Index (RPI), or the agreed increase in Council Tax, whichever is the greater.
