The Bill, which will go before the Lords this month, looks at how to streamline TPOs' administration, he said. "It aims to make the system more accessible and more streamlined for local authorities and the end user."
The time frame depends on the Bill's passage through Parliament, which could take a year. The move will not mean more TPOs or stronger TPOs, Annett added.
"Quick-fix" legislation that does not require changes to primary legislation is part of the consultation.
