Additional documents:


            The Committee received a report from the Licensing Manager which set out the proposed licence fees structure for specified licensing regimes to take effect on 1 April 2020.  She provided an explanation as to how the figures had been arrived at and emphasised that the Council sought only to recover its costs rather than achieving a surplus.  The fees would be reviewed on a regular basis as it was likely that further changes to processes would continue over the next few years as ways of working more efficiently were brought forward.


            In considering the matter, Members also took account of the Council’s Taxi Policy and, following a brief discussion whereby Members sought and received clarification on a number of points, the Committee




That the fees be set as proposed by officers and which had been calculated in accordance with the requirements of each regime and principles of cost recovery laid out in guidance.
