Arnold-Baker on Local Council Administration Ninth edition

Arnold-Baker on Local Council Administration has long been established as the guide to this specialist field of local government law. Amongst local councillors it is often called ‘The Bible’. It is a complete statement of the law relating to parish and community councils through an extensive, though succinct, narrative accompanied by comprehensive pertinent statutory materials.
It covers everything from parish and manorial history to the new laws now governing local councils. All aspects are explored in a user-friendly style. It also includes appendices of relevant statutes, statutory instruments and an extensive list of useful contacts.

The 9th edition of this popular book has been extensively updated to cover the many changes with direct application to local councils. New material covers recent legislation, including the Pensions Act 2008, the Bribery Act 2010, the Equality Act 2010, the Charities Act 2011, the Localism Act 2011, the Growth and Infrastructure Act 2013, the Accounts and Audit (England) Regulations and the 2011 Code of Practice on Publicity. In addition, in relation to Wales, the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011 and the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011 are covered. This is a key text for parish and community councils, local authorities and solicitors practising in local government and public/administrative law.



The author, Paul Clayden, is a solicitor and was formerly chief executive of the National Association of Local Councils. He is now a freelance consultant and author specialising in local government and environmental law. He has over forty years' experience in advising parish and community councils and has been a council clerk.
