What you need to know: premises, the compact, and public law
Many organisations either rent or use council-owned premises. The attached guide [34kB, PDF] is a short introduction on how the compact, public law, and equalities duties, are relevant and can be used where decisions are taken that affect your use of premises. It will help organisations to know where they stand, what their rights are, and how they may be able to challenge unfair decisions.
The Empowering the Voluntary Sector project brings together expertise in the compact and public law providing advice and advocacy for organisations on a whole range of decisions taken by public bodies. Contact them on 020 7520 3161 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
