Consideration of recommendations (CH21/34) to the Cabinet from the meeting of the Communities and Housing Advisory Board of 9 November 2021.


The Cabinet resolved that:


(1)             the approach to pass the increase in material costs directly on to the purchasers to ensure the subsidy currently provided did not increase, be agreed; and


(2)            Option 3, to apply a one-off increase to eliminate the entire subsidy and allow fees and charges to cover the full management and maintenance costs of the Cemetery site, which would need an 89% increase to be applied across all charges based on the 2021/22 Original Estimates, be agreed.
