Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
The Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980 makes provision as to compulsory competition tendering (“CCT”) in respect of certain construction and maintenance work undertaken by local authorities and development bodies. The Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980 (Competition) (Scotland) Regulations 1995 (“the 1995 Regulations”) have, since 31st March 1995, applied 1980 Act CCT in Scotland only to jobs over £500,000 in value. The 1995 Regulations would, in terms of the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980 (Competition) (Scotland) Regulations 1996 (“the 1996 Regulations”), have been repealed and replaced as at 1st July 1997. These Regulations revoke the 1996 Regulations before they come into force and make consequential amendments to the 1995 Regulations so as to make them of continuing application.
