Plain English guide to the Localism Bill

Actually did this last week, but haven’t had time to breathe, let alone post since then!

Basically, the Government has released it’s own plain English guide to their big Bill on local govern­ment and how they’d like to see it change.

I’m glad there are people out there attempt­ing this sort of thing, but unfor­tu­nately their version was a victim of some of the clas­sic plain language traps — the writer may have been overly famil­iar with the Bill’s jargon (it’s hard not to be affected by it when you’re surroun­ded on all sides!), and it could have cut out some of the flowery language that does­n’t really mean anything.

So I did a new one. Hopefully, it’s easier to understand.

The follow­ing two tabs change content below.
