Section 213 Charging schedule: approval

347.Section 213(1) to (3) prescribes the circumstances in which a charging authority may approve a charging schedule and how it is to approve one. A schedule may only be approved if the examiner appointed under section 212 recommends approval and with any modifications the examiner recommends. A charging authority (other than the Mayor) must approve a charging schedule at a meeting of the authority and by a majority of votes of the members present. The Mayor must approve a charging schedule personally.

348.In addition, subsection (4) provides a regulation-making power to permit charging authorities to be able to correct errors in a charging schedule after it is approved (without having to formally review it).
