Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Local Government Pension Scheme (Scotland) Regulations 1998 as a result of the Transport (Scotland) Act 2005 (asp 12). The effect of regulation 3 is that Transport Partnerships created by virtue of an order under section 1 of that Act will be Scheme employers under, and employees of the Transport Partnerships will be eligible for membership of, the Local Government Pension Scheme (Scotland).

Schedule 5 to the Local Government Pension Scheme (Scotland) Regulations 1998 sets out the appropriate fund for each member of the Scheme. Employees of a Transport Partnership will generally fall within the fund administered by the local authority within whose area that Transport Partnership lies. Regulation 4 makes provision so that employees of certain councils who transfer to a Transport Partnership remain with the fund which previously administered their pension.
