Scrap plans to scrap coun­cil

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

COUN­CIL­LOR Michael Mul­laney has called on the Tory led Le­ices­ter­shire County Coun­cil to drop plans to scrap Hinck­ley and Bos­worth and the other Bor­oughs in the county.

Speak­ing at an an­nual con­fer­ence, the Lib­eral Demo­crat Coun­cil­lor, said: “De­ci­sion mak­ing over con­tro­ver­sial is­sues such as plan­ning de­vel­op­ments, should be taken at a lo­cal Bor­ough level, not im­posed by a re­mote sin­gle Le­ices­ter­shire author­ity.

“One author­ity for Le­ices­ter­shire would cover seven Bor­oughs and dis­tricts, an enor­mous area and pop­u­la­tion.

“One author­ity can­not fairly rep­re­sent the huge va­ri­ety of towns and vil­lages in our coun­try.

“I be­lieve the County Coun­cil should drop these flawed plans for one uni­tary author­ity for Le­ices­ter­shire, Hinck­ley and Bos­worth and the other lo­cal bor­oughs should be kept.”
