Consultation on Qualifications of Clerks in Wales Regulations
On 28 June 2021, the Minister for Finance and Local Government published the ‘Eligible Community Councils (General Power of Competence) (Qualifications of Clerks) (Wales) Regulations 2021’ consultation.
The Local Government and Elections (Wales) Act 2021 (“the 2021 Act”), sets out the intention of Welsh Ministers to specify, in regulations, the qualifications or description of qualifications that the clerk to a community council must hold in order for the community council to meet the second of the three eligibility conditions to become an ‘eligible community council’.
SLCC will be submitting a formal repose to the consultation which will close 24 September 2021.
Members are invited to make their council aware of the consultation and, if necessary, submit their response using the methods details here.
