The Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000 (PPERA) establishes a fixed legal framework for the conduct of any national referendum held across the UK, or a referendum held in Scotland, Wales, England or Northern Ireland.
Similarly, the Local Authorities (Conduct of Referendums) (England) Regulations 2012 establish a framework for the conduct of any referendum relating to whether a local authority (a county, district or borough) should change their governance arrangements.
In accordance with the Local Authorities (Referendums) (Petitions) (England) Regulations 2011, local authorities are required to publish a notice detailing the number of local government electors required to validate any petition to trigger a local referendum.
