Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009

Section 30 - powers of direction: collaboration arrangements

59.Section 30 permits the Welsh Ministers to direct a Welsh improvement authority which may not itself be failing (or be at risk of failing) to collaborate with one that is. The Welsh Ministers must consult that first authority before issuing the direction. This is to ensure that if a weakness in authority A could be addressed by it collaborating with authority B (which had no such weaknesses), then the Welsh Ministers could direct authority B to collaborate, but would have to consult authority B before issuing any direction.
