129 Court to direct who is to prepare plan

(1)

Where, pursuant to section 128, the court is required to obtain a plan in respect of any order, the plan must be prepared by the applicant for the order, or any other person that the court directs.

(1A)

Where—

(a)

a person prepares a plan; and

(b)

that person is not the chief executive (acting through the chief executive’s delegate); and

(c)

that plan has any implications for the chief executive,—

the plan shall be of no effect unless it has been prepared in consultation with the chief executive or the chief executive’s representative, and contains an express statement to the effect.

(1B)

For the purposes of subsection (1A), a plan has implications for the chief executive if it proposes that—

(a)

the chief executive be required to provide services or assistance pursuant to a services order under section 86; or

(b)

the chief executive be required to provide support pursuant to a support order under section 91; or

(c)

a child or young person be placed in the custody or care of the chief executive; or

(d)

the chief executive be appointed as the sole guardian, or as an additional guardian, of a child or young person; or

(e)

a child or young person receive counselling or other services under this Act, where that counselling or those services would be provided at the department’s expense; or

(f)

either—

(i)

a child or young person be placed in the custody or care of any person or organisation; or

(ii)

any person or organisation be appointed as the sole guardian, or as an additional guardian, of a child or young person,—

and that the chief executive provide financial assistance to that person or organisation; or

(g)

any order (whether a services order under section 86 or a support order under section 91, or any other order) be made in relation to any person or organisation, and that the chief executive provide financial assistance to that person or organisation for the purpose of assisting that person or organisation to give effect to the order.

(2)

Where the court considers that any plan prepared pursuant to section 128 is inadequate, it may direct the person who prepared the plan to furnish to the court a revised plan, and may indicate any specific matter that it requires to be dealt with in that plan.
