AMs approved the motion to approve the general principles of the Local Government Byelaws Bill on 24 April 2012.
The bill aims to give effect to the Welsh Government's proposals to simplify procedures for making and enforcing local authority byelaws
The local government committee had previously agreed to the general principals of the bill and during the debate, Committee chair Ann Jones AM outlined the eight recommendations which include:
- ensuring relevant town and community councils are informed when a byelaw which affects them is to be revoked;
- ensuring the minimum consultation period for a byelaw is increased from one month to six weeks,
- making sure the minister continues liaising with Chief Constables in Wales, and recommends this continues, with a view to providing consistency on the role of PCSOs across Wales.
