At their 936th meeting (7 September 2005), the Deputies invited their Thematic Co-ordinator on Local and Regional Co-operation (TC-LARC) to consider the proposals contained in Congress Recommendation 162 (2005) on the revision of the Charter of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe. He was asked to prepare a reply to the Congress, taking into account possible comments from the Steering Committee on Local and Regional Democracy (CDLR).

In the light of discussions at TC-LARC meetings on 20 April 2006 and 30 January 2007, the Thematic
Co-ordinator has consulted widely with the Steering Committee on Local and Regional Democracy (CDLR), the President of the Congress and through him the Congress Bureau, and with delegations. In the light of these consultations, the Thematic Co-ordinator has finalised a draft reply including a revised draft statutory resolution and charter, appended to that reply.

The Thematic Co-ordinator submits the draft reply and the revised draft Statutory Resolution and Charter, as they appear in document CM/Cong(2007)Rec162 prov. to the Ministers’ Deputies’ 994th meeting (2 May 2007) for adoption.
