Appendix A: Recommendations

Chapter 16 – the legislative vehicle

R136The OIA and LGOIMA should be re-drafted and re-enacted. The sections should be rearranged in a more logical order; important provisions which are presently insufficiently emphasised should be given more prominence; and the language should be modernised and simplified as appropriate.

R137As part of re-drafting and re-enacting the OIA and LGOIMA, consideration should be given to combining the two Acts into one piece of legislation. However, the need for accessibility and clarity should remain paramount.
