Proposed Playing Fields (Community Involvement in Disposal Decisions) Measure

Progress of the Measure on proposed impact assessments for the selling off of playing fields.

Dai Lloyd AM has been granted leave by the Assembly to introduce a proposed Measure on the selling off of playing fields. Dr Lloyd won a ballot in December 2007 that enabled him as an Assembly Member who is not a member of the Government to introduce a proposed Assembly Measure. He now has six months to draft and introduce the proposed Measure which will seek to place a duty on local authorities to consider the impact that selling any playing fields could have on the communities around them before proceeding with a sale.
