Local Government Act 2003

Schedule 7: Minor and consequential amendments: paragraph 81

232.Paragraph 81 of Schedule 7 amends the Homelessness Act 2002. It clarifies that the requirement to publish certain material produced under that Act applies to the original homelessness strategy prepared under section 1 of the Act, as well as revisions to that material prepared under section 3. It makes clear that the duty to publish only relates to the material prepared under that Act (and not to the whole of any document containing such material). This amendment means that if a local authority decided to meet the requirements of the Homelessness Act 2002 by including its homelessness strategy prepared under that Act in the same document as a housing strategy it is required to have under section 87, there is no obligation to publish the whole of that document. In practice the local authority may find it desirable to publish the entire document on housing related matters.
