To seek approval of the proposals.




·         Under Standing Orders (Section 6.2, paragraph 19 (a) to (c) the Chairman of the Council has agreed that this decision should be exempt from call-in in order that the 2 elements of this proposal i.e. the charges and hours of operation come into force simultaneously on 1 April 2019. The main part of the proposals relating to the fee charges had already been through the scrutiny process in January 2019 prior to being subsequently agreed at Cabinet on 22 January 2019 as part of the Financial Budget submission and so the call-in process for that element of the proposal does not apply under Standing Orders (Section 6.2, paragraph 18 (h)).  However, part of the supporting process for the increased charges involved the need to make a Traffic Regulation Order to change the hours of operation to come into operation on 1 April and that would normally be subject to call-in.  However, doing so raised the potential for a problem of timing between the 2 elements if the hours of operation decision was to be called in.  Therefore, as the main fee charges has already been through the Scrutiny process before going to Cabinet the Chairman of the Council agreed to waive the process for the hours of operation as any delay could prejudice the Council’s or public’s interest.
