Section 4 – Period to which plan relates
16.Fee and access plans must specify the period in respect of which they are to have effect. Section 4(2) provides that the period must not exceed two years. Regulations may substitute a different period, but before making such regulations, the Welsh Ministers must consult the bodies and persons referred to in section 4(4). Currently, regulations made under the Higher Education Act 2004 provide that the maximum period of time during which a plan may be in force is two years.
