A MORI opinion poll published today reveals that two thirds of the public would prefer to deal with a single council.

Today's figures based on responses in Avon, Gloucestershire and Somerset reinforce those published in October in Cleveland, Derbyshire and Durham, said the ADC today.

Margaret Singh, Chair of the ADC, said the results show people are 'in favour of unitary authorities at a more local level'. She added that county scares about the costs for reform and effects on council tax bill may explain the contrary level of public support for the status quo found in North Avon and Gloucestershire when the polling was taken.
