Permit fees review

  • Period: 12 January 2018 - 12 March 2018
  • Status: Closed
  • Audiences: Everyone
  • Topics: Licensing and applications, Traffic management
  • Type: Public

Following a restructure of the Street Works team in September 2016 a number of additional posts were included in order to improve resilience within the team and ensure consistent service delivery. Due to this change, a full re-evaluation of the fee profile has been undertaken to ensure the cost neutral requirement of the service delivery. This is allowed for in the permit scheme regulations in order to ensure that the permit scheme operates on a cost neutral basis for the council while delivering the service effectively and efficiently. This analysis of the current fee levels has highlighted that there is a deficit, and therefore Shropshire Council is required to amend the permit fees to cover this cost.

The information below details the fees that will be impacted.

A two month consultation period will commence on the 12 January 2018 and end on 12 March 2018, with the proposed new charges being in force from 1 April 2018.
