Officers are recommending that the authority does not increase licensing fees for sexual entertainment venues, casinos, street traders, animal health businesses and approved marriage venues.

The report is, however recommending that fees go up for scrap metal and second hand dealers, pavement cafes and skin piercing establishments.

The authority says that these areas have been targeted because will require the council to "allocate more staff time than in the previous year".
