This report sets out the proposed fees and charges for 2019/20 for inclusion in the budget report to be considered by Council in February 2019.



That the fees and charges for 2019/20, as set out in Appendix 1 of the report be included within the budget report proposals to Council in February 2019.

Reasons for the decision:

The Cabinet’s budget strategy provides for a multi stranded approach to balancing the budget which includes increased income from fees and charges.


The specific proposals for fees and charges in 2019/20 have been developed with input from Portfolio Holders. All services have followed a consistent review process to ensure that charges are reviewed in line with policy principles.


The final decision on fees and charges for 2019/20 will be made by Council in February 2019 as part of the annual budget report.


Alternative options considered:

Not increasing fees and charges would result in a shortfall of income in 2019/20 and would require alternative savings or income to be identified to balance the revenue budget.
