Newark and Sherwood's district councillors have their say on super council idea proposed by Nottinghamshire County Council leader Kay Cutt
District councillors have made their views on a super council clear after the idea was proposed by Nottinghamshire County Council leader Kay Cutts.
Under the proposal, Nottinghamshire’s seven districts and borough councils would be scrapped, along with the county council, and replaced with one single council for the whole of the county, excluding the city.
The controversial scheme was shelved in 2018 after fierce opposition, but Mrs Cutts has revived the idea in the wake of coronavirus, which has placed a huge strain on council finances.
