Land Charges

Question

The local land charges budget must balance. In the light of the downturn in the housing market and the belated recognition in August 2010 that Councils cannot charge for the inspection of environmental information it would appear that in 2010-11 Councils lost a significant sum of its envisaged land charge income.
In 2011 the position will be worse. The loss of land charge income will be for a full financial year.
Please provide :
All copy documentation to show all the steps the Council are taking to balance their land charge budget.
A copy of the accounts (and accompanying reports) for the land charge section showing the profit and loss for they years 2005 to date.
All documents, both internally (including management team and committee reports) and that from external bodies (including government departments and the LGA) making representations and suggestions with regard to search fees and the land charge budget
