You need to ask for a Council's policy on such matters.
If they do not have one then they can not charge you £4000. This seems an awful lot.
You should ask for a policy and also complain to the Chief Officers department of the Council. That office investigates complaints and will do so in this case.
They will respond accordingly. If you are not satisfied with their response then you can complain to the Ombudsman. They offer a free, independent service. Their website is: www.lgo.org.uk
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
