Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007

Section 99 - Duty of local authority to apply for variation or revocation

340.Where a permanence order has been made, the local authority on whose application the order was made must apply to the appropriate court, as soon as is reasonably practicable, for the variation or revocation of the order where it determines that there has been a material change of circumstances directly relating to the provisions of the order and, consequently, that the order should be varied or revoked. The term ‘variation’ includes amendment of the order and therefore includes seeking provision granting authority for the child to be adopted.
