Minutes:

The Policy Officer submitted a report to inform members of the review of the implementation of the Corporate Concessions Policy and seek approval for the continued use of the policy.

 

The current policy was implemented in April, 2017, enabling the Council to provide a concession on charges to some discretionary services and supporting the ongoing delivery of the council plan and medium term financial plan.

 

The policy had worked well across all relevant service areas; as a result no amendments or concerns were raised during the review.
