To consider proposals for Fees and Charges relating to Windermere Lake from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021.
The Operational Lead Delivery and Commercial Services presented a report including proposals for Fees and Charges relating to Windermere Lake and the Lake Wardens Services for the 2020/21 financial year.
The fees covered six distinct areas, namely:-
· permanent and holiday moorings;
· yearly renewed encroachments (the commercial term leases were outside the scope of the Fees and Charges);
· ancillary services (including slipway, training, dinghy and winter storage);
· marina berths;
· license fees; and
· legal fees.
The proposals sought to limit the increase in fees and charges whilst sustaining the Lake Income, and met the Medium Term Financial Plan requirements of a 2% rise where practicable.
Discussion took place with regard to legal fees and the Legal, Governance and Democracy Lead Specialist (Monitoring Officer) explained in detail the type of work carried out by the Legal Team in this regard.
RESOLVED – That the Fees and Charges, as set out in both Appendix 1 and 2 to the report, be approved.
