The new forms follow a recent consultation and feedback from users who were directly involved in their development. The redesign aims to make the forms easier to follow and faster to complete.
Both old and new versions of the of LPA forms can be submitted for the next 6 months (ie until 1 Jaunary 2016) If the old LPA forms have been completed, signed and dated correctly by Friday, 1 January 2016, they can still be registered at any time providing they have been made correctly.
