We are seeking your views on the draft General Power of Competence (Commercial Purpose) (Conditions) (Wales) Regulations and the proposal that community councils that meet certain criteria be provided a power to trade.
The Local Government and Elections (Wales) Act 2021 gives qualifying local authorities a general power of competence. Authorities may use the general power to do things for a commercial purpose.
We are consulting on Regulations which require authorities to prepare a business case before using the general power in this way.
We are also consulting on the proposal that community council eligible to exercise the general power be provide for a power to trade in their ordinary functions.
