Charity References in Documents

This consultation paper sets out the Scottish Executive’s proposals for the regulations to set out the circumstances and methods by which charities in Scotland must identify themselves as charities and on which documents this must be done. The Scottish Ministers have powers to make regulations on this matter under section 15 of the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005. The proposals are intended to help everyone to understand when they are dealing with a charity by ensuring that all charities always identify themselves adequately on formal documents.

Applying the Planning Acts to the Crown

The purpose of this consultation exercise is to invite comments on the three draft Statutory Instruments (SIs) and draft Circular which are needed to give effect in England to the provisions of Part 7 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 ("the 2004 Act"). By applying the planning Acts to the Crown, the provisions of Part 7 provide the basis for removing the Crown’s immunity, but detailed secondary legislation and associated guidance is needed to make them work effectively.

The closing date for this consultation is 16 December 2005.
