Minutes:

The Committee considered the report of the Head of Community Services seeking agreement for the licence fees for 2018/19 where the Council has discretion over the level of fee charged.

 

The Licensing Compliance Manager reported that where the Council had discretion no increases in charges were proposed, as the fee would cover the expected costs to the Council. Fees were comparable to those in neighbouring districts. Enforcement action was taken against taxi drivers who were caught failing to comply with the legal regulations.  The City Council approved street closures for small events under the Town and Police Clauses Act: the County Council approved road closures for large events under different powers.

 

The Committee resolved to:

agree the licence fees and charges for 2018/19 as set out in the Appendix to the report and recommend these to Council.
