Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007


154.Part 2 of the Local Government Act 2000 put in place a new decision-making framework in which there is a separation of the decision-making and scrutiny roles of local authorities. It required the majority of local authorities to put in place executive arrangements involving the creation and operation of one of three different forms of executive. For certain small district councils, the option of alternative arrangements, not involving a separate executive, was made available.

155.Part 3 of, and schedule 4 to, this Act provide for the discontinuance of two of the forms of executive, the leader and cabinet executive and the mayor and council manager executive, provided for under the 2000 Act. It introduces a new-style leader and cabinet executive. It also provides the means for an authority to adopt governance arrangements which differ from its existing arrangements.
