Finding, Understanding and Applying Legislation

Wed, 08 Dec 2021 18:30

Time: 6.30pm to 8.00pm

Cost: £22.50 or £16.88 with small council bursary

A session for Clerks to help them in the administration of their councils.

We often talk about the duties and powers that councils must and can use that direct or enable them to take action to serve their communities well. But what is it that enables a council to give a grant to a specific body? Why can councils run cemeteries? Why can't councils do certain things such as giving a grant to a church for upkeep of its property for example? Why does an ordinary meeting of a council require at least three clear days' notice?

In this session we not only want to instil the importance of legislation, but to look at how to find relevant legislation, how to understand what it is stating and how councils should apply it.

This is a new session in our training offer, and we hope that as all clerks need to have this knowledge, there will be good take up. We can run more than one session if there is demand.
