    provided at no charge

    What's the opposite to 'provided at no charge'? Is it 'provided at charge'? (I don't need to mention the exact amount of money, I just need to show that it is not free and some charge is taken for the service.) Is the following sentence correct?
    Local amenities are provided at charge (= they are not free).
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    A common form is "provided for a fee".

    I think it is possible to say 'There are charges for using local amenities'.
    I am not a teacher.
