Consultation – #wco Regulation (Tackling burdens: Reducing burdens on local government)

19/03/2011

Clark, Greg raised an interesting point.

Subject(s): Regulation; Democracy; LocalGov; Parliament-UK; Metadata; Scrutiny

Local authorities are bound by statute. Their functions are set out in numerous Acts of Parliament and many of these functions have associated legal duties.

The duties on local authorities have accumulated over the years with successive pieces of legislation. While some duties remain vital, others may no longer be needed or may create unnecessary burdens or restrictions on local authorities. To address this, the Government is carrying out a wide ranging review to establish the duties which are no longer needed and to remove them, giving local authorities freedom to operate in a way that meets local needs and priorities.

Comment by #wco: Excellent news – especially the removal of Data burdens for open data access and scrutiny
