It says the districts have agreed that the public should be invited to consider a proposals for four all purpose or unitary authorities, in place of the existing county and six district councils. The proposals would allow people in rural communities to run their affairs separately from he big cities, says the ADC branch.
Chairman of the branch, John Brooks, said: 'The county council announced its preference for two large councils centred on Cambridge and Peterborough some time ago and we felt it was important that the public should be offered an alternative proposal.'
He said the districts were united in wishing to give the public a choice for the county area as a whole. The districts propose unitary councils for Peterborough city, Huntingdonshire and Cambridge city and a return to an area similar to the historic Cambridgeshire and the Isle of Ely, combining south and East Cambridgeshire with Fenland.
