PLO / Children Act Guidance to local authorities

The DCSF has sent a letter to Chief Executives and Directors of Children's Services introducing revised statutory guidance about Children Act 1989 court orders, which comes into effect on 1 April 2008, alongside a revised Practice Direction (the 'Public Law Outline', which provides guidance to judges/magistrates). The new Volume 1 'Court Orders' guidance replaces the guidance issued in 1991.
The guidance includes the draft notice to parents of intended proceedings, a pre-proceedings checklist & draft directions.
