General Power of Competance
General Power of Competence is obtained when the Clerk has completed the CiLCA qualification and the Council resolves to accept the General Power of Competence.
The Council has to have at least two thirds of its Councillors elected (not by casual vacancies) to ensure the General Power of Competence is retained.
The Council has the power to do anything that individuals generally may do as ling as they do not break any other laws. The Council does not have to identify specific powers to undertake an activity reducing the risk of legal challenge.
Both Anne and Zoe have the CiLCA qualification.
