Minutes:

The Executive Board Member considered a report detailing the potential impact, and effect, of Welsh Government changes to the “Cap” on charges for non-residential services and the need for charges in Carmarthenshire to increase in order to continue to maximise income.

 

To gain full cost recovery for 2020-21, and to align rates with other local authorities in Wales, it was proposed to increases Non-Residential charges for hourly charged services from £14.00 to £16.50 (17.85%) and Day Care and Adult Placement charges from £13.50 to £16.15 (17.85%).

 

It was noted that the additional income for 2020-2021 would be approximately £34K if service charges were set to maximise income.

 

RESOLVED that Carmarthenshire increases its Non-Residential charges for hourly charged services from £14.00 to £16.50 (17.85%) and Day Care and Adult Placement charges from £13.50 to £16.15 (17.85%).
