Omit clause 16 (page 31, lines 24 to 29).

95AB Use of special consultative procedure in relation to annual plan
  • Where the special consultative procedure is used in relation to the adoption or amendment of an annual plan under section 93,—

    • for the purpose of section 83(1)(a), instead of a statement of proposal and a summary of the information contained in the statement of proposal, a consultation document that complies must be prepared and adopted in accordance with this section and section 95A; and

    • section 83 applies as if references to the statement of proposal or the proposal or any summary were references to the consultation document.

    To avoid doubt, a draft annual plan must not be used as an alternative to the consultation document.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends various clauses of the Bill to restore the right for the public to submit on important decisions that could affect them. This includes restoring the special consultative procedure for annual plans and the establishment of Council Controlled Organisations.
