Is Key decision?: No

The Chief Officer (Highways and Transportation) was requested to approve the revised level of charges to be applied from 1 April 2023 and until further notice.

The increase is a direct result of applying general income inflation at 4%, to the 2022/2023 charges of October 2022 in line with corporate guidelines as recommended in the Initial Budget Proposals for 2023/2024 Executive Board Report and rounded to the nearest ten pence.

The commuted sum schedule has had rates rise by 4% in line with general income inflation. The fees for S278 agreements are also proposed to rise by 4% from the October 2022/2023 values in line with general income inflation, rounded to the nearest pound.

Site Development have confirmed that the charge for stopping up orders is unchanged and likely to be reviewed in the 2024/25 report.

Traffic Engineering have confirmed a 3% increase for repeat, small scale, local community events as this charge is applied to charity and non-profit making events only.
