UNITARIES 'WILL ENHANCE BUSINESS REGULATIONS ENFORCEMENT'

The establishment of unitary authorities will go a long way towards providing more consistent and co-ordinated enforcement of regulations affecting business, the Association of District Councils has said.

The association was responding to the announcement by the Department of Trade and Industry of a review into the way councils carry out their enforcement functions.

The ADC welcomed the review, stating that its aim of reducing overlap and duplication was entirely consistent with the shift to unitary authorities under the local government review.

In metropolitan areas where the various enforcement functions are carried out by a single authority, councils have been able to develop one stop shops which have reduced duplication and enhanced service quality, the ADC said.

It said one stop shops can only operate where there is a single tier of local government.
