Summary
This paper summarises the local government and community empowerment sections of the Bill. The Bill would give effect to the Government's commitment to localism by devolving greater freedoms to local authorities and communities. This includes introducing a general power of competence for local authorities, a community right to challenge and the right for communities to bid for community assets. It also introduces new rules imposing council tax referendums when a council sets excessive council tax, and strengthens rules relating to local referendums for other matters. Other matters include: changes to business rate legislation and governance arrangements for local authorities, including the introduction of mayoral referendums in certain cities; the abolition of the standards regime in England; the clarification of the law relating to predetermination; and the introduction of new rules relating to the publication of salaries of senior council officials
