Declarations of interest
There were no declarations.
The Head of Regulatory Services and Community Safety has submitted a report to seek agreement of the licence fees for 2023/24 where the Council has discretion over the level of fee charged.
Recommendation: That the Licensing & Gambling Acts Committee resolves to:
1. Agree the licence fees and charges for 2023/24 as set out in the Appendix 1 and recommend them to Council.
The Head of Regulatory Services and Community Safety had submitted a report to seek agreement of the licence fees for 2023/24 where the Council has discretion over the level of fee charged. The Council did not have discretion over setting all of the fees detailed in the report, as some were determined by legislation (Licensing Act 2003 and Gambling Act 2005).
The Senior Licensing Compliance Officer introduced the report. It was proposed that no substantial variation to the current fees and charges was made in 2023/24 in order to provide financial stability to licence holders in the present economic climate. She highlighted the only proposed changes detailed in the report within the miscellaneous charges intended to cover the authority's costs due to inflationary pressures.
The Committee resolved to:
1. Agree the licence fees and charges for 2023/24 as set out in Appendix 1 and recommend them to Council.
Recommendation: That the minutes of the meeting held on 26 September 2022 be APPROVED as a true and accurate record.
The Committee agreed to approve the minutes of the meeting held 26 September 2022 as a true and accurate record.
