Enforcement costs

A licensing authority may charge such reasonable fees as they may determine in respect of an inspection of premises following:

  1. a failure to comply with a licensing condition, or
  2. a complaint relating to the premises (unless the complaint is frivolous or vexatious)

The decision to make such a charge will be taken in a proportionate in line with the Enforcement Policy for Environmental Health. Where such a charge is to be made, we'll seek full cost recovery for such inspections based on the productive hourly rate for the grade of officer undertaking the inspection.
