What is it?
  • Its a voluntary act (which Newcastle Borough

How does it work
  • 1)Local people come up with ideas these go
    through the local authority the Local
    Government Association (LGA) and then to
    the Secretary of State (SoS) who make the final
    decision on what actions should be taken.
  • 2)The local authority can look at transferring
    functions from one body to another. To do this
    they must first consult with the body that
    already provide the service as well as the
    proposed body who the function would be
    transferred to.
