- Review of Non-statutory Registration Fees
The Council manages the Registration Service which has several statutory functions including the registration of births, deaths, civil marriages and civil parnterships. The service is based at Llwynegrin Hall, Mold and has custody of archived records from which copy certificates are issued. The service also licences venues for civil ceremonies across the County and conducts a variety of non-statutory celebratory services. The fees relating to statutory services are prescribed by statute and cannot exceed the cost of providing the service. However, the Council has scope to set fees for non-statutory services.
The nature of the Registration Service means some services such as marriage are booked up to 24 months in advance and consequently non-statutory fees need to be set in advance to allow couples to plan. A fundamental review of fees was undertaken when the Council introduced its “Fees and Charges Cost Recovery Template” and new fees were implemented on 1st April 2021, for three years.
Each year the fees are reviewed to ensure the service always publishes a three year set of fees. This report sets the fees for 2025/26 to ensure the Registration Service continues to publish three years fees.
- Social Care Case Management System
The contract for the existing Social Care Case Management System is due to end on 31st March 2025 and therefore procurement of a Social Care Case Management System is required.
