Charging policy

Corporate objectives

The charging policy is driven by our corporate objectives. These currently are:

  • to create a borough that is prosperous, clean, healthy and safe
  • to ceate a borough of opportunity
  • to create a clean, safe and sustainable borough To create a healthy and active community
  • a co-operative council delivering high quality, community driven services

Charges should be determined in such a way as to promote the achievement of these objectives and, just as importantly, so as not to frustrate their achievement.

These are high-level objectives, which set the overall policy direction. More detailed criteria will be applied, operating within these parameters, in determining whether to make a charge and in setting that charge. These are set out in charging principles section of this policy.
