Fees and Charges 2019/20 - Highways and Traffic

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member - Transport and Environment

Decision status: Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The purpose of the report is to obtain agreement to the fees and charges for specified services provided within the Highways and Traffic Service.


The Cabinet Member agrees that:


  1. The recommendation for the new fees, charges and commuted sums for relevant services - as proposed in Appendix 1 and 2
  2. That these are to be implemented on 1st April 2018.

3.  That delegated authority be given to the Highways and Traffic Group Manager in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Transport to agree fees and charges which vary from the standard inflation clause, if the cost base changes or new services are introduced, and that this can be done at 6 month intervals if external factors influence the cost base significantly throughout the financial year

Reasons for the decision:

Fees and charges are designed to recover costs and are in line with comparable services offered by neighbouring Councils. 

Some fees and charges are based on quotes depending on the length of time to undertake the task.

As the cost base for fuel, plant and materials and other items can change throughout the year, the Service requires the ability to review prices at 6 month intervals to ensure full cost recovery.
