People in Lancashire want a single council based on their district to provide local services, according to an independent survey carried out by MORI on behalf of the 14 borough councils in the county.

According to a statement issued by Blackburn BC, the survey found 63% of people in favour of new local councils based on district areas to run services, compared to 20% who chose the county council.

MORI interviewed people in all 14 districts in preparation for the review of local government due to start in the area later this month, says Blackburn.

The survey polled 3,104 people at 238 different points in Lancashire between July 3 and August 13. It was commissioned by the districts and approved in detail by the Local Government Commission, said the statement, because of the weight given in the review to the views of local people.
