Additional documents:


The Committee considered the report of Mr Green which set out the proposed fees and charges for 2019/20 for the services within the remit of the Committee.


It was noted that the main source of income from the fees and charges for this Committee was the Crematorium.


In response to questions from the Committee, Mr Green advised that:-


·  The Maidstone Management Allotments Committee managed the allotment sites on behalf of the Council.

·  The charges for Bereavement Services were competitively priced and were benchmarked against other providers in the region.

·  A briefing note would be prepared by Officers on the effectiveness of the Woodside Walk Book and circulated to the Committee.

The Committee requested that the service providers for activities that come under the responsibilities of the Committee such as the Allotments Management Committee, Serco and Parkwood Leisure present their annual reports to the Committee to enable a dialogue to be formed and that this should be built into the Committee Work Programme. 



1.  The proposed discretionary fees and charges as set out in Appendix A to this report be approved.

2.  Key service providers be invited along to the Committee to present their annual report and that this is built into the Committee Work Programme.
