Section 130 - Duty to have regard to improvement targets

295.This section places a duty on all local and partner authorities for the area covered by a multi-area agreement approved by the Secretary of State under section 127 or 129 to have regard, when exercising their functions, to each improvement target in the agreement that relates to them. This duty does not apply where the agreement concerned has not been approved in accordance with section 127 or 129. Signatories to a multi-area agreement agreed with Government prior to the commencement of these provisions will not, therefore, be subject to this duty unless that agreement has been subsequently approved by the Secretary of State under section 129.
