This new edition has been updated to include: New regulations on individual ward member delegation The impact of recent case law Powers to Petition and a Councillor Call for Action will be introduced shortly New scrutiny powers are in progress and all this will have a significant impact on the scope and ambit of decision-making and the practice and procedure involved Featured throughout are relevant case histories and illustrations of model documents and procedures.
