Following the introduction of compulsory competitive tendering under the Local Government Act 1988, pressure has mounted on local authorities and other public bodies to increase their profitability. Municipal Trading provides practitioners with the tools to identify the existing powers that local authorities have to trade, and shows them how to apply these powers inventively to increase trading activity.

Both the lawyer and the non-legal specialist will appreciate its clear and easy-to-follow discussion of the nature of powers and duties, as well as the many examples and case studies given throughout the text to highlight the application of them. Nowhere else will practitioners find such a comprehensive yet practical treatment of local authority powers to trade - especially in one, easy-to-access volume.

Use it to find out about the types of powers available to authorities and how to employ them to an authority's advantage:-

  • the ultra vires doctrine
  • consequences of municipal trading
  • powers of charge
  • trading within local authorities
  • trading outside the public sector
  • Provides the tools for the local authority to identify how their powers can be used imaginatively
