Special educational needs - detained persons - timescales for EHC plans Duty

When a home authority sends a draft plan to the appropriate person it must:
(a) give them at least 15 days, beginning with the day on which the draft plan was served, in which to—
(i) make representations about the content of the draft plan, and to request that a particular school or other institution be named in the plan, and
(ii) require the home authority to arrange a meeting between them and an officer of the home authority at which the draft plan can be discussed, and
(b) advise them where they can find information about the schools and colleges that are available for the detained person to attend on release from detention.

The final plan must be sent to persons specified in Regulations as soon as practicable, and in any event within 20 weeks of the home authority receiving a request for an EHC needs assessment, or on the date which the detained person has been brought or comes to the attention of the authority.
