CLA465 - The Local Authority Elections (Wales) Order 2014

 

ProcedureNegative

 

This Order, made under sections 87, 105(2) and (3) and 106(1) of the Local Government Act 2000, provides that the ordinary elections of councillors of county councils, county borough councils and community councils in Wales will take place in 2017 instead of 2016. It does so by substituting “2017” in the appropriate places in the Local Government Act 1972, which sets the years of ordinary elections for county councils, county borough councils and community councils.
