Fees from 1 October 2019

Suffolk County Council have recently reviewed the licence fees in conjunction with neighbouring authorities and the administrative cost which Suffolk County Council incurs as a result of processing, monitoring and inspecting activities of licences on the public highway. 

Therefore, with effect from 1 October 2019, licence fees will be increasing. The increased fees will be published in due course.
