Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order makes amendments to the Local Government Reorganisation (Wales) (Capital Finance) Order 1996 and the Local Government Reorganisation (Wales) (Capital Finance and Miscellaneous Provisions) Order 1996.
Article 2 of this Order deletes superfluous definitions from the interpretation provisions of the Local Government Reorganisation (Wales) (Capital Finance) Order 1996.
Article 3 of the Local Government Reorganisation (Wales) (Capital Finance and Miscellaneous Provisions) Order 1996 modified the application of Part IV of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 in relation to money transferred under some agreements made under section 56 of the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994 (“the 1994 Act”). The agreements are those concerning land, buildings or other structures (except roads), made between certain public bodies affected by area changes made by the 1994 Act (“relevant authorities”).
Paragraph (3) of that article (which provides that any receipt by a relevant authority under a section 56 agreement shall be treated as a capital receipt) is not however restricted to agreements concerning land, buildings or other structures (except roads). Article 3 of this Order amends that paragraph to restrict its application to such agreements.
