Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 134 – Schemes for the accreditation of quality in community government

150.Enables the Welsh Ministers to make regulations to provide for an accreditation of quality scheme for community councils.

151.There is currently no national accreditation of quality scheme to assess the competence of community councils in Wales. The Welsh Ministers consider that there is value in developing such a scheme to help raise standards of local government by community councils.

152.The intention of the Welsh Ministers is that, in the first instance, a national accreditation of quality scheme in Wales should be developed and operated on a non-statutory basis. However, the Welsh Ministers consider that it would be beneficial to have a “reserve” power to introduce a statutory accreditation scheme should this be considered appropriate at some future point. This section provides this power.
