The Local Government Commission this afternoon announced that it is to hold meetings to explain the review of the structure of local government in Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk over the next two weeks (November 30-December 9).
A team from the commission is to explain its approach, and discuss the process and local timetables with leading local councillors and senior officers and with representatives of local organisations in the voluntary, business and cultural sectors, the commission said. A key message will, it says, be how it might help achieve local consensus over options for change.
The statement says: 'The commission has to review the structure, electoral arrangements and boundaries of local government in each of the four counties, and evaluate the benefits of introducing unitary authorities to run all services at present divided between county and district councils.'
