Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
Under Part I of the Local Government Act 1988 (competition), work falling within certain defined activities may be carried out by authorities such as development corporations only if particular conditions relating to competitive tendering are fulfilled.
This Order exempts from the requirements of Part I ground maintenance by four development corporations in Scotland so long as it is undertaken in the respective areas of those authorities in the period prior to their wind-up. A similar exemption was made in the case of Livingston Development Corporation by S.I. 1994/3084.
