description
An interpretation of the powers and duties conferred by law on councils and other bodies to deliver services. A 'duty' is something that a council must do. A 'power' gives a council the right to do something. Each power and duty is linked to relevant services and the official publication of associated legislation.
Use – Councils can clearly understand which services they must deliver and those that might no longer be a priority. This list also enables Councils via the mappings to find web pages that need changing and identify teams who need re-training following a change in legislation.
