Local Authority Powers and Duties changed by the Coronavirus Act 2020

Lists of Primary Legislation covering the Powers and Duties for English and Welsh local authorities are maintained and available to subscribers through the Powers and Duties tool. The data includes changes resulting from the Coronavirus Act 2020.

We're also making freely available these documents describing changes from the Act:

1. Changes to Local Authority Powers and Duties resulting from the Coronavirus Act 2020 (PDF)

The document describes new duties and powers introduced by the Coronavirus Act 2020, as well as revised duties and duties that have changed to powers.

Subscribed LG Inform Plus users can also see this as a filter on our Powers and Duties tool.

2. Coronavirus Act Powers and Duties Spreadsheet (CSV)

The spreadsheet gives the same information as the above PDF document, but as data. In Column J, it gives the specific section of the relevant act.


In coming months we expect to add to the Power and Duties Tool further legislative changes in response to the Coronavirus and other changes, including the results of a detailed review of Trading Standards.
