Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009

Section 9 - powers to collaborate etc

16.This section confers on Welsh improvement authorities broad powers to enable them to collaborate with each other and with other bodies, for the purpose of discharging or facilitating the discharge of the duties under section 2(1), 3(2) and 8(7). Section 9 allows an authority to collaborate with another authority to facilitate the discharge of the other authority’s duties, whether or not that would facilitate the discharge of its own duties.

17.Whilst the Measure confers the same powers on all types of authority covered by the Measure, it does not empower or compel other bodies to collaborate with a Welsh improvement authority. However, many such bodies may be able to do so under their existing powers. This section ensures that the three types of Welsh improvement authorities have equivalent powers.

18.Subsection (3) provides that these new powers do not affect any Welsh improvement authority’s powers in other legislation.
