Review of Fees and Charges 2015/16 - Licensing Fees pdf icon PDF 32 KB

Additional documents:


The report of the Director of Central Services set out details of the proposed licensing fees and charges for 2015/16.  The report focused on the fees to be charged for Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing and other miscellaneous licences/registrations dealt with by Licensing Services.  Particular reference was made to the introduction of a fee of £25 for the ‘Knowledge Test’ undertaken by applicants for a driver’s licence which would cover the cost of the administration and materials used to set up and run the tests. 


A number of Members sought clarification on the new Home Boarding licences and the registration of the breeding and sale of dogs and it was agreed that a report on this matter would be submitted to the next meeting of the Licensing and Appeals Committee.  In response to a comment on the cost of the annual consent for a fixed street trading pitch the Licensing and Community Safety Manager offered to undertake an analysis of costs within the review of street trading to be undertaken in 2015. 


RESOLVED:  That the proposed scale of fees for licences, consents and registrations, as set out at Annex 1 to the report, be adopted with effect from 1 April 2015.
