Woking, Surrey, United Kingdom, 2011/09/21 - James Richardson and Aligned Assets team up again to run training courses in the Law of Street Naming and Numbering - Aligned-Assets.co.uk.
Aligned Assets are pleased to announced the scheduling of two more training courses in the ‘Law of Street Naming and Numbering’.
To be held in Bristol on 29th November and in Bolton on 6th December, the courses will be run by the UK's leading expert in the field, James Richardson, a solicitor in local government from 1982 until his retirement in 2004.
These one day courses are designed to equip the delegate with all the knowledge and skills required to legally fulfil their statutory duties in Street Naming and Numbering.
As an essential component of local government, Street Naming and Numbering plays a crucial role in everything from the collection of council tax to the collection of waste and recycling. Despite its importance to many of the modern functions within local government, the law governing it dates back to 1847 and in order for the process to operate correctly and within the confines of the law, understanding the legalities involved is of the utmost importance.
Items covered by the course include the Towns Improvement Clauses Act 1847 and the Public Health Act 1925, plus explanations on how a council can adopt either of them. Also included will be the requirements in the Local Government Act 1972, how to investigate rule breakers and prosecute offences, plus the large amount of case studies to go through and discuss.
After attending one of the courses in London, Evan D. Jones, Senior Engineer for Highways at Isle of Anglesey Council said,“It was a very worthwhile and very helpful course. There were good presentations and excellent opportunities to interact, discuss and ask questions.”
