IGNORANCE REIGNS ON ROLE OF COUNTY

Barely half the adults in shire areas know which services county councils provide, an NOP survey for the Association of District Councils has shown.

In interviews with 792 people an average of 54% knew which services counties provided, and 66% knew which services districts provided.

'The results show the failure of the 1974 structure of shire local government. After 20 years local people are still unclear which council provides which service,' said the ADC. In a second poll across England, 77% of 832 adults believed 'one council should provide services for each area'.
