An essential compendium of local authority charging powers, this comprehensive guide will prove invaluable to all practitioners involved in generating income for local authorities via charging for their services. It also enables local authorities to examine whether they are making the most of their statutory charging powers. Dealing with the whole area topic-by-topic, the work identifies and examines when and how a local authority is statutorily empowered to charge for a service. Coverage includes:-

  • planning functions and economic development
  • environmental health and protection
  • education and related services
  • social services and community care
  • law and order/emergency services
  • street parking and market trading
  • highway and transport functions
  • consumer protection
  • libraries and museums
  • housing
  • general licensing functions
  • animal health
  • an overview of charging powers
Where relevant, the author examines important case law, such as R v Richmond Upon Thames LBC, ex parte McCarthy and Stone (Developments) Limited, where the House of Lords decided that existing legislation did not extend to an authority imposing a charge on a developer for pre-application advice.
