Structural and Boundary Changes

December 7th, 2018

The Local Government (Structural and Boundary Changes) (Amendment) Regulations 2018, S.I. 2018/1296, will come into force on 2 January 2019. The Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 Part 1 provides for structural and boundary changes in relation to local government areas in England.  These Regulations, made under Section 14 of the 2007 Act, make incidental, consequential, transitional and supplementary provision of general application in relation to the exercise of certain functions for the purposes of, and in consequence of, Orders made by the Secretary of State under Sections 7 and 10 of the 2007 Act.  Part 1 of these Regulations amends Regulations previously made under Section 14 of the 2007 Act.  Part 2 of the Regulations makes provision to specify the dates on which the collection funds and general funds of councils established under a Section 10 Order must be established in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Finance Act 1988, and modifies relevant provisions of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 to allow those councils, in setting their council tax, to take account of precepts which may be issued by charter trustees which may be established under a Section 10 Order.
