Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

Part I of the Local Government Act 1999 imposes duties on local and other authorities to conduct best value reviews of their functions and to prepare a best value performance plan (in this Order called an “improvement plan”) for each financial year.

This Order specifies the date by which an authority’s improvement plan for a financial year must be published and the date by which copies of an auditor’s report relating to the plan are to be sent to the authority, the Auditor General for Wales and, if required, the National Assembly for Wales.

This Order revokes the Local Government (Whole Authority Analyses and Improvement Plans) (Wales) Order 2002 and does not make any replacement provision concerning the period within which a best value authority should review all its functions.
