Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009

Section 117 – Orders

260.This section sets out the procedure for making orders under the Part.

261.Subsection (1) requires an order under the Part to be made by statutory instrument.

262.Subsections (2) and (3) provide that an order under the Part is subject to the affirmative resolution procedure unless it is an order under section 116 alone and only amends legislation subject to the negative resolution procedure.

263.Subsection (4) enables the draft of an order to proceed as if it was not a hybrid instrument. This avoids the need for special procedures which apply to instruments which have a differential effect on people or places to be applied to these orders.
