Education (Wales) Measure 2011

Section 12 – Implementation of proposals under section 11

31.This section makes provision about the implementation of proposals to federate.

32.Subsections (2) and (3) set out who is required to implement the proposals. These are the local authority or the governing body in so far as the proposals provide for this, and any other person set out in regulations.

33.Where a local authority has confirmed proposals they must be implemented as confirmed (subsection (4)). However, confirmed proposals may be modified at the request of persons specified in regulations (subsection (5)).

34.Under subsection (6) a local authority can determine not to implement a confirmed proposal if it would be unreasonably difficult to do so or if circumstances have changed so much that it is no longer appropriate to do so. Regulations may require the local authority to consult prescribed persons before making that determination (subsection (7)).
