CLEVELAND SAYS SPEAK TO LOCAL PEOPLE OVER REVIEW

'Should the people of Teesside have the right to decide their own futures?' is the question that needs to be answered by all those involved in making the final decisions on reorganisation in the area, Paul Harford, leader of Cleveland CC said today.

Mr Harford said the question needs to be asked after the revelation that far more Teessiders wanted a new Teesside authority than supported any other option.

The county says that figures obtained from the Local Government Commission but not previously made public showed that, excluding responses from Hartlepool which could have its own authority, the option of a united Teesside council attracted more supporters than all the four other options combined.

Mr Harford dismissed comments from local district councils following publication of the figures as 'ill tempered, illogical and inaccurate.'
