Local Government and Elections (Wales) Act 2021

Section 111 – Guidance

507.This section provides that any person who has functions under or by virtue of this Chapter (other than the Auditor General and principal councils; an equivalent guidance provision applying to principal councils is in section 89(3)) must have regard to guidance issued by the Welsh Ministers about the exercise of those functions.

508.If someone is exercising a function under this Chapter which relates to an assessment of the extent to which a principal council is meeting the performance requirements (for example, if a panel is carrying out an assessment under arrangements made under section 92), they must have regard to any guidance that the Welsh Ministers have issued about the performance requirements. Again, this requirement does not apply to the Auditor General or principal councils.
