We need your views on the Council’s budget which includes proposed fees and charges for the financial year 2024-25.

Residents, businesses, and communities are invited to share their feedback on the proposed fees and charges as part of the wider budget consultation for 2024-25 which will be taken to Full Council in February 2024 for approval.

Your feedback will help us shape our financial priorities and deliver value for money for our residents, businesses, and communities. 

What is the ‘fees and charges’ consultation

The fees and charges include services provided by the Council ranging from leisure to commercial waste services and highways to planning services amongst other chargeable services.

You can find a list of fees and charges table below categorised by each department and service area with proposed changes for 2024-25.

Why are we consulting

It is a statutory requirement for a Council to set a balanced budget, which requires all income generated from government grants, council tax, business rates and investments, alongside savings plans, to be equal to all expenditure by the Council. This ensures that the Council is operating in a sustainable and manageable way.

This budget has been created to support our Council Plan commitments, to create a Greener, Safer and Fairer borough for all residents to enjoy.

How to respond

Have your say on our draft fees and charges proposals to help ensure the Council delivers its Council Plan priorities and sets a balanced budget for 2024/25.

The fees and charges consultation opens from Thursday 7 December 2023 and ends on Sunday 7 January 2024.
