Section 114 - Local toilets strategies: interim progress statement

245.This section places a duty on a local authority that has published a local toilets strategy, or carried out a mandatory review of a strategy, to prepare and publish an interim progress statement.

246.Each interim progress statement will review progress made by an authority in implementing its strategy during a two year-period, defined by subsection (3) as the “statement period”.

247.The statement period in a case where an authority’s most recently published strategy has not been reviewed under section 113 will begin on the date of publication. In the case of the first interim progress statement to be produced, the two year statement period will run from the date of publication of the first strategy, unless the strategy is revised before the end of the two year period, in which case the two year statement period will begin to run again from the date of the publication of the revised strategy. The date of any subsequent publication of a revised strategy – whether following a mandatory review or a review an authority chooses to carry out – would mark the beginning of another statement period.

248.The statement period in the case of a mandatory review of a strategy begins on the date the local authority last reviewed that strategy.

249.An interim progress statement must be published by an authority no later than six months after the last day of the relevant statement period.

250.The Welsh Ministers must issue guidance to local authorities about the matters which they should take into consideration when preparing an interim progress statement.
