Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 126 – Community councils’ powers to promote well-being

141.Amends section 1(b) of the 2000 Act to include community councils in the list of local authorities on which the power of well-being is conferred by section 2(1) of that Act.

142.Part I of the 2000 Act provides a power for local authorities to do anything that they consider is likely to achieve the promotion or improvement of the economic, social or environmental well-being of their area. In relation to Wales, this power is currently conferred on county councils and county borough councils only. The Assembly Government considers that extending the power of well-being to community councils will enhance the opportunities for them to develop their role in promoting and improving the well-being of their areas.
