(b)giving the additional information required by subsection (2) below.

(2)A council’s development plan shall—

(ii)any schools situated outside the council’s area which are currently so maintained and which the council would wish to maintain in exercise of its LEA functions; and

(3)In preparing a development plan, a council shall—

(a)consult the local authorities for adjacent areas; and

(b)take into account any guidance given by the Secretary of State (whether as to the contents of the plan or as to consultation with any other persons, and whether as to such plans generally or as to the particular council’s plan).

(4)Guidance given by the Secretary of State for the purposes of subsection (3)(b) above shall be published in such manner as the Secretary of State thinks fit.

(5)A development plan shall be published in such manner as the council concerned considers likely to bring it to the attention of persons (both inside and outside its area) who may be affected by the performance by the council of its LEA functions, and the council shall make copies of the plan readily available, during office hours, to persons wishing to inspect it.
