Public notices. The case for radical reform: part 1



The LGiU have published a new policy report that looks at the current requirements on councils to publish public notices in local newspapers.

We call for changes to be made in the following areas:

– free up councils to decide, based on their local online and offline ecosystem, where best to place public notices

– councils should work to de-jargon the content of public notices

– councils who decide to publish public notices online should offer residents the ability to register to updates via email

– hyperlocal websites and traditional publishes should look to work with councils to publish on their website

– DCLG should look to see if the production of a central portal like TellMeScotland is suitable for England and Wales.
