Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 100 – Repeal of existing provisions about establishment and dissolution of community councils, etc

113.Repeals the existing provisions in sections 28 to 29B of the 1972 Act governing the procedures for establishing and dissolving community councils (including for groups of communities), to make way for the new provisions set out in this Measure. The Welsh Assembly Government considers that the existing provisions are unnecessarily complex and the development of community councils is hindered by the existing thresholds which apply to some of the procedures for the establishment or dissolution of a community council. The Welsh Assembly Government considers that the existing thresholds for establishing a community council are too high and those for dissolving a community council are too low.
