Play Sufficiency Assessment (Wales) Regulations 2012


The Order which brings into effect section 11(1) of the Children and Families (Wales) Measure 2010, which requires all Local Authorities to assess the sufficiency of play opportunities for children within its area commences on 1 November 2012 – that is, it comes into force.

As part of that process there is a formal procedure for introducing the Regulations and Statutory Guidance. They have to be laid before (presented to) the National Assembly for Wales for 20 days, at which point they have to be approved by the whole Assembly before they come into force.
