The General Power of Competence

Local councils in England were given a 'general power of competence' (GPC) in the Localism Act 2011, sections 1 to 8. This paper explains the freedom granted by the general power, the criteria to be met before a local council can use it and some restrictions on using the power.It notes the CiLCA questions and pass criteria (see also the Portfolio Guide 2012) and some useful weblinks.The power does not apply to parish meetings or to local authorities in Wales.
