Legislation in recent years has affected the ways in which local authorities carry out their functions. This title provides an overview of this complex subject and a guide to how the principles derived from case law and legislation are operated in practice.
The powers of local authorities have been subject to close scrutiny by the Court of Appeal in the cases of ""Credit Suisse v Allerdale Borough Council"" and ""Credit Suisse v Waltham Forest London Borough Council"". These cases should have a substantial effect on the way that local government lawyers advise on whether particular courses of conduct are likely to be beyond the powers of an authority.;The book is published at a time when local authorities are being encouraged to be innovative.
Recent amendments to the capital finance regulations are intended to facititate partnerships between councils and the private sector. The book examines these developments together with the rules which govern local authority participation in companies.;A particular theme of the book is how to ensure that challenges to decisions are avoided.
