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.

You can read the outline proposal that was submitted to government here.

You can read a summary of the proposal here. 


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:

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.
