This paper is taken from the Department of Communities and Local Government publication, ‘A plain English guide to the Localism Act’

Year of Publication2011

The Act brings new freedoms for local government to respond to what local people want. It ensures that communities with a bright idea can change how things are done. It will give local people more influence on the planning system and make it easier for authorities and local people to draw up a vision for their area’s future. The Act gives local authorities more control over the funding of social housing. It gives people who live in social housing new ways of holding their landlords to account, and makes it easier for them to move.
