To consider the proposed Regulatory Services and Health Mobile Homes Act 2013 Fees and Charges Policy for 2018-2019.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report regarding the proposed Regulatory Services and Health Mobile Homes Act 2013 Fees and Charges Policy 2018-19.

 

In accordance with the Mobile Homes Act 2013, the Council was permitted to charge a fee for administering the statutory licensing function for residential caravan sites.  It was also permitted to set fees for other functions such as maintaining a register of site rules and transferring and amending licences.

 

The Council was only able to set fees on a ‘cost recovery’ basis, and as part of setting the fees it was required to have a Fees and Charges Policy in place for mobile home sites, which was reviewed annually in order to ensure that the fees reflected the cost of administering the licensing function.

 

RESOLVED - That the Regulatory Services and Health Mobile Homes Act 2013 Fees and Charges Policy 2018-19, as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, be approved.
