Young People's Learning Agency for England did not have the information requested.

Dear Young People’s Learning Agency for England,

With respect to the localisation bill currently going through the house, what impact will the bill have on the sale of college assets (buildings) ? Will it mean a local authority or community have any increased voice/consulting on sale of such assets ?

If YPLA have conducted any assessments of the impact of localisation bill on the way in which YPLA conducts itself, please provide copies of these documents.

Yours faithfully,

Neil Corrie

Dear Mr Corrie,

 

With reference to your Freedom of Information request, please see our
reply to your questions below.

 

Question 1

With respect to the localisation bill currently going through the house,
what impact will the bill have on the sale of college assets

(buildings) ? Will it mean a local authority or community have any
increased voice/consulting on sale of such assets ? 

 

The YPLA is not able to comment on legislation currently being considered
by Parliament.  The role of the YPLA is to implement policies, as
instructed by the Secretary of State and by the Department for Education.
If this Bill becomes law, the Secretary of State will probably set out any
changes to the responsibilities and functions of the YPLA (and of the
Education Funding Agency when it comes into being on 1 April 2012).  We
may at that point have a better understanding of the implications on how
colleges dispose of or acquire assets and the role of this Agency in that
process.

    

Question 2

If YPLA have conducted any assessments of the impact of localisation bill
on the way in which YPLA conducts itself, please

provide copies of these documents.

 

The YPLA has not assessed the potential impact of the Localism Bill; so we
do not hold the information you have requested. 

 

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mike Davies
