EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Order)

Part 2 of the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009 (“the Measure”) introduces a system of community planning in Wales. Section 38(1) of the Measure provides a list of public bodies which are referred to as 'community planning partners' under Part 2 of the Measure. These bodies are required to participate in community planning. This list includes police authorities.

In accordance with the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 (“the 2011 Act”), police authorities were abolished and replaced with Police and Crime Commissioners. To reflect the change made by the 2011 Act, article 2 of this Order removes police authorities from the list of community planning partners in the Measure and replaces them with Police and Crime Commissioners.

The Welsh Ministers' Code of Practice on the carrying out of Regulatory Impact Assessments was considered in relation to this Order. As a result, a regulatory impact assessment has been prepared as to the likely costs and benefits of complying with this Order. A copy can be obtained from the Local Government and Communities Division, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3NQ.
