Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009 Explanatory Notes

Section 95 – Changes to boundaries of an EPB’s area

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

201.Subsection (2) reflects the conditions in subsections (2), (3), (4) and (5) in section 85, so that the revised area would have to meet the same conditions as have to be met for the initial designation of an area of an EPB.

202.An order changing the boundary of an EPB’s area cannot be made unless each of the councils in subsection (3) have agreed to the boundary change.
