I was surfing as normal and came across a very new code of practice from an LA in this case Halton Borough Council (HBC) dated the 17/05/2016

 

 

I have briefly read it and seems rather fair although at this time it is in it's draft format. Thoughts anyone?

What is different it also takes us back to the 'vulnerable household' quote:-

 

 

'd) Identify any ‘vulnerable’ members of the household as described in section 10 of this document.'

 

There are many more different questions in this draft document worthy of discussion for those that are interested, the above one is just a sample, although covered before numerous times....

I note that inthe draft the Council wanted 14 days notice before an EA could visit. I wonder if that was changed for the final document.

There are approx 330 local authorities in England & Wales and each one of them will have a Code of Practice. As you have quite rightly observed, this one is merely a draft so may well have been amended.

 

Many of the contracts that I have seen leave a great deal to be desired. Given that the fee scale is the the same for each local authority and the method of enforcement must adhere to the Schedule 12 procedure it baffles me as to why there cannot be one universal contract.

But that would mean adapting an iota of commonsense. With very few exceptions that is a word that should not be mentioned in the same sentence as Council.

It doesn't baffle me at all. It makes perfect sense actually. Councils are inspected on their procedures for procurement in many areas, and this would be an element of that process. It gives councils an degree of flexibility within the legislation to exercise their own judgement, it's actually quite a shame that more don't. However, as Ploddertom states, the two words council and commonsense should perhaps not be mentioned in the same sentence.
