‘Costly’ legal services for Aylesbury Vale District Council is to be provided by Harrow Council, if approved by councillors.
As outlined in a report, the cost of legal services has been slashed from £742,000 to £600,000 since 2013.
But the recommendation to delegate services to a third party will help ‘address budget pressures’.
With a 2015/2016 budget for legal services of £616,800, the proposal will provide ‘as efficient as possible legal service function’.
Harrow Council’s shared legal service, HB Public Law, will provide all legal services from September 1 if the council gives it the green light.
HB Public Law is already providing interim provision for AVDC so the transition to full provision should be ‘straightforward’.
A decision on legal services will be made at the district council’s cabinet meeting on July 14.
