Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007

Duties of council undertaking review

Section 93: Duties when undertaking a review

215.This section specifies duties which a principal council must comply with when conducting a community governance review.

216.Subsection (8) requires principal councils to complete the review within 12 months.

Section 94: Recommendations to create parish councils

217.This section directs principal councils to create parish councils in parishes which have 1000 electors or more. In parishes with 151 to 999 electors the principal council may recommend the creation of either a parish council or a parish meeting. In new parishes, or existing parishes without a parish council, that have 150 or fewer electors principal councils are unable to create a parish council and therefore parish meetings must be created. This does not apply to existing parishes which have a parish council. The aim of this is section is to extend the more direct participatory form of governance provided by parish meetings to a larger number of electors.

Section 95: Electoral recommendations: general considerations

218.This section is concerned with the considerations that the principal council must have regard to when making recommendations about electoral arrangements for a parish council. These considerations include whether a parish should be divided into wards.
