New fee structure for animal activities licensing arising from introduction of new legislation

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Approved new fees, including a 2 part payment structure, for animal activities licences in accordance with option 2 and as set out in table 1 of this report.  


Noted that the proposed licence fees have been calculated on the basis of recovery of all reasonable costs in full.


Noted that the new legislative regime may have a negative impact upon the fee income received as is set out in table 2. This is because licenses may be issued for 1, 2 or 3 years depending on how well run the business is. This is in contrast to the fixed period of 12 months for every licence under the previous regime.


Noted that the Director of Housing & Safer Communities will agree amendments to the existing Service Level Agreement with the Corporation of London for the provision of veterinary services to support the animal licensing function.
