The Executive Board considered a report on proposals for the introduction of new Licensing Conditions for Animal Establishments and for the Council to undertake formal consultation on the introduction of a new fee structure. The Board was advised that whilst the current fee structure adopted by the Council was insufficient to recover its costs, the proposed new structure, if adopted, would reverse that position with the fees being set at a level in line with the nationally recognised ‘toolkit’ for fees calculation and phased in over a two year period.
UNANIMOUSLY RESOLVED THAT IT BE RECOMMENDED TO COUNCIL THAT
7.1 the new Licensing Conditions for animal establishments within Carmarthenshire be approved;
7.2 formal consultation be undertaken on the revised fee structure for animal establishments within Carmarthenshire
