Section 106 – Changes to boundaries of a combined authority’s area

234.This section allows the Secretary of State to make an order changing the boundary of the area of an existing combined authority. Such an order could either add or take away from a combined authority’s area the whole of the area administered by a county council or district council.

235.Subsection (2) provides that an order may be made if the new area meets the conditions in subsections (2), (3), (4) and (5) in section 103 and if each local authority specified under subsection (3) consents to the making of the order.

236.Subsections (4) to (7) require the order to designate one or more authorities as local transport authorities, to take over the transport functions for any areas removed from the combined authority’s area. The requirement does not apply to those areas that become part of an integrated transport area of an Integrated Transport Authority.
