It has been a few years since out last hire charge survey and the latest is now available. There has been a small but significant increase in most of the fees charged. For the first time we asked members what the County Council paid for holding elections in halls. As you will see this varied hugely. Those halls paying the least should certainly consider renegotiating the payment. In those circumstances, our understanding is that the County Council would be prepared to increase their offer. For the survey, go here.
Our next Consortium meeting will take place in the evening of March 27th 2019 at a venue yet to be agreed. We will let you know as soon as the location has been decided.
