Joint ARP Debt Management and Recovery Policy (Agenda Item 11)
Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
To create a Joint ARP Debt Management and
Recovery policy reflecting practices that have been adopted in this
area as a result of Shared Services across the Anglia Revenues
Partnership and the addition of three new partners
That the Policy set out in Appendix A is approved.
Reasons for the decision:
1. To provide a consistent policy across all seven partners of the ARP. Continuing with separate policies would not be efficient given the shared provision of Revenues collection across the partnership; and
2. To update the policy in this area in order to make clear to customers what the recovery process entails.
Alternative options considered:
1. To approve the Policy set out in Appendix A
2. Not to approve the Policy set out in Appendix A and to continue using the existing Policy.
