Report of the District Surveyor.
The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director of Environment advising the Committee of the findings of the Building Control’s review into their previous fees and charges increases and to recommend revised fees for 2022/23. The Executive Director of Environment introduced the report and outlined the key points for Members. The Chairman commented that he felt general feedback was that the serve was good and represented value for money, adding that the service was also in the process of digitising, which he hoped would be joined-up.
In response to a question from Member, the Executive Director of Environment advised that whilst the increase in charges was below inflation, it would be sufficient, and that the fees were correct.
RESOLVED – That the Planning & Transportation Committee approve the new “City of London Building Regulations Charges Scheme No 5: 2022”, the “Building Control Miscellaneous Charges No 4: 2022” and amend the charge relating to the Hourly rate from £112 to £115 per hour.
