The relatively small number of councils indicating that the current limit on s137 expenditure had restricted their activities in recent years tended to be those which had the longest track records in using this power; those representing parishes with populations of 10,000 or more and were predominantly town or urban councils.
Where councils do not have specific powers to enable them to develop their role, s137 of the Local Government Act 1972 has been seen as a possible means of providing scope for further local council expenditure.
However, there were instances of councils of all population sizes, locations and types, indicating that their failure to respond to local needs as they would have liked was due the current s137 limit and the regulations governing the use of this power.
