Section 15HCA as local planning authority: local involvement

38.Prior to exercising any function conferred upon it by a designation order, the HCA must prepare and publish a statement of local involvement. The statement will set out the HCA's policy on how it intends to involve affected local authorities, and other particular persons, in the exercise of functions conferred upon it by a designation order. This statement must be kept under review and revisions must be published. Where the HCA establishes a committee or sub-committee for the purposes of exercising those functions, every local authority within the designated area can suggest one or more candidates for membership to that committee or sub-committee

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
