Section 134 - Approval of the revision proposal

303.Subsection (1) provides that the Secretary of State may approve or reject a revision proposal that is submitted by the responsible authority. Where the revision proposal is submitted following a direction, the section provides that the Secretary of State will also be able to request that the proposal be modified.

304.Subsection (2) specifies that the changes will have effect in the multi-area agreement at the point the Secretary of State approves the revision proposal.

305.Subsection (3) provides that where the Secretary of State requires a modification to a revision proposal, this takes effect as a further direction to prepare a revision proposal, and so the duties on the responsible authority and local and partner authorities in relation to preparation of a revision proposal will still apply.
