Report of the Director of Open Spaces.
The Committee considered a report of the Director of Open Spaces on the 2021/22 Events Fees and Charges for the City Gardens. The report proposed that the fees and charges for events that are held in City Gardens sites throughout the 2021//22 financial year be increased by 1.3% in line with the November Retail Price index figure and explained the rationale behind this suggestion.
The Committee discussed the need for a greater increase in the Fees and Charges for the City Gardens noting the need for the Department to be more commercially minded. The Committee agreed the recommended increase but also instructed Officers to provide a further report later in the year with an update on the position and more information on possible increased charges.
RESOLVED- That the proposed 2021/22 fees and charges as set out in Appendix 1 of the report be approved.
