The Well-Being of Future Generations Bill

Today saw the introduction of a Welsh Bill for the long-term.  Formerly known as the Welsh Sustainable Development Bill it has been given a firm forward looking title and set of actions and is now the “Well-Being of Future Generations Bill. 

The proposed Well-Being of Future Generations Bill is expected to become law in Spring 2015.

“The Bill strengthens existing governance arrangements for improving the well-being of Wales to ensure that present needs are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

The Bill:

  • identifies goals to improve the well-being of Wales.
  • introduces national indicators, that will measure the difference being made to the well-being of Wales.
  • establishes a Future Generations Commissioner for Wales to act as an advocate for future generations.
  • puts Local Service Boards and well-being plans on a statutory basis and simplifies requirements for integrated community planning.”
