MPs debated the report stage and third reading of the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill on 13 October. It now goes to the House of Lords for consideration of the latest amendments.
The Bill seeks to create greater opportunities for community and individual involvement in local decision-making. It also provides for greater involvement of local authorities in local and regional economic development.
