When a local authority has a duty to accommodate a child, or has decided to do so with the agreement of persons with parental responsibility in order to safeguard or promote the child’s welfare, the legal framework of care planning and the decisions that have to be made regarding the choice of placement are set out in ss 22 and 22A–22F Children Act 1989 and the Care Planning, Placement and Case Review (England) Regulations 2010 (the 2010 Regulations). The regulations and statutory guidance on good practice interpretation of the legislation are published in vol. 2 of The Children Act 1989 Guidance and Regulations (HM Government, 2010). As indicated earlier, both the regulations and guidance are due for revision in 2014.
