About The Committee
Welcome to the Local Government and Regeneration Committee webpage.
The role of the Committee is to examine issues which fall within its remit. This includes scrutiny of Scottish Government policy, expenditure and administration in the area of local government, planning and regeneration across Scotland.
The Committee meetings are generally open to the public and convened weekly on Wednesday mornings. The agenda and public papers are made available on our Current Business section. To book tickets contact the Parliament’s Visitor Services Department.
The Committee has launched a call for evidence on the general principles of the Bill.
The closing date for the Committee's call for evidence is Friday 6 November 2015.
Following consideration of the written evidence, the Committee will take oral evidence in late November 2015.
The Committee is expected to publish its report on the general principles of the Bill in December 2015.
