The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has undertaken an exercise to bring model byelaws up-to-date including accompanying guidance.

There are no requirement for local (parish and town) councils to update their existing byelaws at this time. However, when councils decide to review, amend, or put in place new byelaws it is then necessary to use the updated model byelaws. NALC will be publishing a new legal topic note on this issue in due course.
