This Act provides for the significant reorganisation of local government structures and the strengthening of governance and accountability in local government. It, among other things: reformulates a new integrated county/sub-county relationship, with the establishment of a comprehensive and modern system of municipal governance; replaces the existing regional structures with new consolidated regional assemblies; provides for further devolution of functions from central level to local government. Local government shall have various functions including functions related to environment protection, water management, waste management and local planning. Provision is made for Local Community Development Committees to be established as committees of the local authority in each local government area to enhance strategic planning and coordination in local and community development programmes, and for the dissolution of City and County Development Board.
