Charging icon

Charging covers current charging policy and practice within local government in the UK, examining the scope for using charging policies across a wide range of services. Charging for services is a financial option where local authorities enjoy a high level of discretion. In addition to generating income at a time of financial constraint, it can be used as a strategic tool to direct resources and services to those most in need.
