Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 36 - Consequential provision etc

56.Makes consequential amendments to provisions in the 2000 Act to reflect the removal of the existing alternative arrangements in Wales. The existing section 29(3) of the 2000 Act which allows local authorities in Wales to change from executive arrangements to alternative arrangements is no longer required; the other changes remove references to procedures in relation to operating alternative arrangements which will be obsolete with the removal of that option.

57.Subsections (5) – (8) permit a local authority currently operating alternative arrangements to continue to do so after the provisions in the Measure come into force. The effect is to allow a transition period for an authority operating alternative arrangements; they link with the requirement in paragraph 2(4) of Schedule 1 to this Measure which requires a local authority to have changed from alternative to executive arrangements within six months of section 35 in this Measure coming into force.
