Well-being duty

The Act places a duty that public bodies will be expected to carry out and is a legal requirement.  The well-being duty states: -

Each public body must carry out sustainable development.  In this Act “sustainable development” means the process of improving the economic, social cultural and environmental well-being of Wales by taking action in accordance with the sustainable development principle, aimed at achieving the wellbeing goals.

We must set well-being objectives that are designed to maximise our contribution to achieving each of the well-being goals, and must take all reasonable steps to meet those objectives.
