Charging and Trading in Local Government provides detailed guidance on local authorities' powers to charge for services and trade, powers that were substantially overhauled and expanded by the Local Government Act 2003.

Written by practitioners who are recognised as the leading experts on this subject, it clearly explains what these powers now are and guides readers through their effective use. Crucially, it demonstrates the practical implications of the new powers by a series of worked examples of possible charging/ trading activities, including the legal processes.

  • Identifies the charging and trading powers local authorities now have available
  • Shows how to use them to an authority's advantage
  • Incorporates the wide-ranging changes introduced in recent legislation
  • Contains a series of worked examples
  • Uses checklists and diagrams to highlight key issues and potential pitfalls
  • Includes a series of tools for assessing the business case for charging and trading
  • Presented in an understandable style suitable for both lawyers and non-lawyers
