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.
