Over the summer we ran a number of online consultations to help us with preparing the outline proposal that has now been submitted to government. We'd like to thank everyone who took part in these consultations. Your valuable comments helped to shape and strengthen our proposal.
We are now preparing the full and final proposals, which will be submitted to government 9 December 2020.
Below are the ways that you can have your say on local government reform, and the East and West model in this final stage of the preparation process:
Which model do you support - ?
Compare the two models of local government reorganisation that have been submitted to government, and vote on which one you believe would be best for our region.
Town and Parish Councils: your views on devolved powers
In the new unitary structures, there is an opportunity for Town and Parish Councils to take on additional responsibilities - but what do you think? In this consultation, we ask Town and Parish Councillors (and their Clerks) to give a perspective.
Please note this consultation is for Town and Parish Councillors and their Clerks only.
To give us your general views on the East & West proposal for local government reorganisation, please email us at
