Detail

The Publicity Code provides guidance on the content, style, distribution and cost of local authority publicity. Local authorities are required by legislation to consider the Code in coming to any decision on publicity, which is defined as any communication, in whatever form, addressed to the public or a section of the public.

A consultation with local authority organisations on a draft revised Code closed on 10 November 2010. The Communities and Local Government Select Committee also undertook a short inquiry looking at the draft revised Code on 6 December 2010. Their report was published on 27 January 2011 and is available from Parliament’s web-site.

A revised Code was laid before Parliament on 11 February. It was approved by both Houses of Parliament on 30 March and came into force on 31 March 2011.
