Proposed new powers for council waste partnerships

New powers allowing for all English and Welsh local authorities to work together to deliver more integrated and cost-effective waste services were announced by the Government today. They are contained in an amendment to the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Bill, debated in Parliament today at the Bills second reading. The Bill is the first step in delivering the Local Government White Paper, Strong and Prosperous Communities, published in October 2006.
