Requirement to hold a referendum

5.—(1) Where a local authority draws up proposals under regulation 2 which would, if they had been made under section 25 of the 2000 Act (Proposals), require the holding of a referendum, the provisions of section 27(1)(a) of the 2000 Act (Referendum in case of proposals involving elected mayor) are to apply to those proposals.

(2) Where a local authority is required to hold a referendum by virtue of paragraph (1), it must also draw up an outline of proposals (“outline fall-back proposals”) which must consist of a summary of the local authority’s existing executive arrangements or its existing alternative arrangements, as the case may be.

(3) A local authority may not hold such a referendum before the later of the following dates—

(a)the date of approval in writing by the Assembly of the proposals to which it is to relate; and

(b)the date which is two months after the date on which a copy of the proposals, statement and outline fall-back proposals are sent to the Assembly in accordance with regulation 6.
