Extra cost for Brighton Centre visitors as fees set to increase Brighton News

A £1.50 levy on tickets purchased at the seafront venue is set to increase to £2 if approved by councillors.

The proposal would mean an increase in income of around £25,000 a year, according to a report being presented to the culture, heritage, sport, tourism and economic development committee.

The report for Brighton and Hove City Council also includes plans to increase other Brighton Centre and VisitBrighton fees and charges by 3.5 per cent, in line with the corporate rate of inflation.

Councillor Alan Robins, committee chairman, said: “We review all our fees and charges every year. It is a vital part of each year’s overall budget-setting process.

“The increases we are proposing are mainly in line with inflation. 

“In some cases, such as the proposal to increase the ticket levy at the Brighton Centre from £1.50 to £2, they reflect increased operational costs. The ticket levy increase would also bring us in line with industry standards.”

The proposals will be discussed at the committee later this week ahead of the council’s annual budget setting meeting, taking place next month.
