The Overview and Scrutiny (Reference by Councillors) (Excluded Matters) (England) Order 2008 (SI 2008/3261) relates to section 21A of the Local Government Act 2000, which provides a power for councillors to refer local government matters to the local authority's overview and scrutiny committee. The Order comes into force on 1 April 2009 and it excludes certain issues from the definition of "local government matter" for the purpose of section 21A. It excludes issues relating to individuals concerning planning and licensing and issues that are vexatious, discriminatory or not reasonable to be included in the agenda for, or to be discussed at, a meeting of the overview and scrutiny committee (or any of its sub-committees). It also excludes issues relating to individuals or entities, where there is already a right to a review or appeal (other than the right to complain to the Local Government Ombudsman).
