Council as part of its budgetary process and under the legislation of the Local Government Act is required to adopt a Schedule of Fees and Charges each year.
Section 97 of Local Government Act 2009 prescribes the circumstances where a Local Government may set a cost-recovery fee. This section also prescribes that a cost- recovery fee must not be more than the cost to the local government of taking the action for which the fee is charged.
Costs for services are reviewed annually, with the full cost recovery model applied wherever possible.
A full schedule of fees and charges for 2017 – 2018 can be viewed above or by relevant departments below.
