Local Government Review in NorfolkJuly 2008 update
The Boundary Committee for England has published draft proposals for patterns of unitary local government in Norfolk and is proposing a single unitary authority for Norfolk covering the whole county and including Lowestoft.
Norfolk County Council backs one unitary council option – read submission sent to the Boundary Committee.February 2008 update
The Boundary Committee has been asked to come up with unitary solutions for Local Government in Norfolk by December of this year.
Local Government Minister John Healey has (5 Dec) asked the Boundary Committee to look at Suffolk arrangements for unitary governance, as well as continuing its work in Norfolk. In the attached statement you will see that the Government has concluded Ipswich's unitary bid did not meet the financial criteria, so has been referred to the Boundary Committee who will be asked to look at options for unitary arrangements in the wider county area.
The Boundary Committee has said it is now taking time to reflect on the implications of this and has indicated that it thinks it unlikely that work will now start on the formal review for Norfolk in January.
We have sent the Boundary Committee our initial concept for unitary governance in Norfolk. This sets out our view that a single unitary council, or two unitary councils covering Norfolk offer the best prospects for efficient and effective local government for local people.
The Boundary Committee tells us that the actual review process will commence when terms of reference are agreed but it is not expected to happen in January 2008 as anticipated.Previous reports
At the full council meeting on November 19, Members agreed to
1. Note the Cabinet’s approach to the development of an outline business case for unitary governance in Norfolk and the Cabinet delegation to the Leader and Chief Executive, in consultation with other Party leaders, and to engage with the Boundary Committee as and when appropriate.
2. Support a series of cross-party Member workshops to develop proposals for local governance arrangements in preparation for full business case preparation.
