Review of Licensing Fees and Charges pdf icon PDF 317 KB

Purpose of Report

The purpose of this report is for the Committee to consider a review of fees charged for licences/registrations which are administered by the Licensing Committee and delegated to the licensing service only.


This review does not include those fees and charges which are set centrally by the Government and are, therefore, not subject to local control.  These include fees and charges applicable to the Licensing Act 2003 and the Gambling Act 2005.




a)    That the Licensing Committee note the contents of this report and approve the level of fees and charges to be adopted;


b)   That the approved fees be implemented with immediate effect, with the exception of those fees which are required to be publicly advertised for a statutory period of 28 days;  


c)    That the Director of Culture, Leisure and Regulatory Services be given authority to advertise (where appropriate) such fees and charges that are subject to the formal statutory consultation process;


d)   That the Licensing Committee approve the preparation of a further report for consideration in relation to the current policy for minimum age limits for licensed vehicles.
