This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations consolidate and amend the existing regulations enuring under the Municipal Corporations Act 1954 relating to the enrolment of electors, accounting by officers of Borough Councils and Town Councils, annual accounts, and appeals to the Town and Country Planning Appeal Board in relation to subdivisions.
Part 1 re-enacts without substantial change the existing regulations relating to the enrolment of electors, but spent provisions have been omitted and the wording of the regulations has been brought up to date having regard to the provisions of the Municipal Corporations Act 1954. Regulation 17 contains new provisions relating to the preparation of a roll of electors for the purposes of a poll to be taken in part only of a borough or town district.
Part 2 specifies the procedure for accounting by officers of the Council and the preparation of annual accounts, and considerably modifies the existing provisions.
Part 3 re-enacts without amendment the existing provisions relating to appeals from decisions of the Council with respect to subdivisions.
