Local Government and Elections (Wales) Act 2021

Section 52 – Annual reports by community councils

309.This section requires community councils to prepare and publish an annual report about the council’s priorities, activities and achievements during the preceding financial year.

310.Subsection (3) dis-applies section 101 of the 1972 Act (by which a community council may make arrangements for any of its functions to be discharged by a committee, a sub-committee or an officer of the council or by certain other authorities) to the decision as to the final content of the annual report. This does not prevent, for example, an officer from preparing a draft of the report for the full community council to consider and decide upon.
