Section 33 - Community councils that cease to be eligible: exercise of the general power of competence

203.Section 33 provides that a community council which ceases to be an eligible community council (and so loses the general power) can continue to rely on the general power in relation to things it has done in the exercise of that power while it was an eligible community council. This means, for example, that a contract entered into in the exercise of the general power may continue, and is not necessarily frustrated, despite the fact that the community council otherwise no longer has the power to enter into that contract.
