Charging policy


This policy applies to all services that can, legally, be provided for a charge, where those services are provided by us or by other parties acting on its behalf. It does not apply to services provided via partnership arrangements, for example in respect of building control fees, although this policy will be borne in mind in any discussions we may have with partners in relation to setting charges in respect of partnership activities. It does not apply to those services where, by law, it is not permitted to make a charge or where an external party, such as central government, wholly determines the charge that is to be made.

Services as referred to in this policy also includes the supply of goods.

Charges are normally determined by members but may sometimes be determined by officers under delegated powers. This policy applies in both cases.
