Section 34: Scheme for whole-council elections

118.This section is concerned with how a scheme for whole-council elections will operate. It requires ordinary elections to be held in particular years. For metropolitan district councils, these are 2010 and every four years after. For non-metropolitan district councils, the years are 2011 and every four years after. This follows the pattern that has been established for non-metropolitan district councils that are already subject to a scheme for whole-council elections. No metropolitan district councils are currently subject to whole council elections.
