Minutes:

The Licensing Manager presented a report seeking approval of revised licence and registration fees in respect of private hire and hackney carriage licensing and scrap metal collectors and sites licensing for 2022/23.

 

It was stated that Council policy was to request an increase of 3%, but a 5% increase was suggested for all fees and charges in the current circumstances to maintain the existing budget position. A summary of the current and the proposed fees and charges was included at Appendix A to the report. A comparison of fees charged by other Derbyshire authorities was included at Appendix B to the report.

 

It was noted that the private hire and hackney carriage proposed fees and charges would be subject to consultation.

 

 

RESOLVED

 

(1)  That the consultation for a 5% increase to fees and charges for Private Hire and Hackney Carriage fees from 1 April 2022 be approved.

(2)  That a 5% increase in fees and charges for scrap metal collectors and sites, and miscellaneous licensing fees from 1 April 2022 be approved.
