Details

Statutory notices are an important means for ensuring that the public is kept informed of decisions by their council which may affect their quality of life, local amenity or their property.

The vast majority of statutory notices originate from a bygone age where the printed word was our key source of information. How we consume information has drastically changed with advances in technology. Statutory notices need to change too.

The government is, therefore, inviting councils, newspapers and others to pilot innovative ways of improving statutory notices. The pilots will explore how we change statutory notices so that they reach more people, are easier to read, give greater visibility and transparency to big issues and reduce costs in a sustainable way.

Expression of interest to become a pilot must be submitted, using the form, by 5pm on Wednesday 28 January 2015.
