Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
(1) That Cabinet approved the scheme of charges detailed in the report.
(2) That the same charges be reviewed periodically in line with service fees and charges review processes.
(3) That the Joint Assistant Director arrange for commercial pest control treatments to be made available as soon as possible after any vacancies in the pest control team has been filled, and develop further pest control services as is commercially viable.
REASONS FOR DECISION – These proposals (and new commercial services which will complement them) will enable the service to support local business and provide local choice from a trusted provider. Income generated can be reinvested in developing the service to ensure resilience in delivery of critical and statutory services.
OTHER OPTIONS CONSIDERED AND REJECTED – Remaining with a minimal business support offer limits the ability of the service to develop the performance of the food sector, and means businesses only recourse is to private providers outside of the district.
