Event: Is there a case for unitary authorities?

21 October 2020

The Government is proposing a new round of reorganisation of local government in England, and is said to favour unitary authorities.

What are the arguments for and against such a structure of unitary local authorities, rather than the two tier structure that we have in Worcestershire?

How large or small should such councils be in order to be optimally efficient and strategic, while also remaining sufficiently in touch with localities?

And what about 'the very local'? How might our town and parish councils fit into the future picture?

For those who missed the event or want to view it again, we recorded most of it and it can be viewed on YouTube:

Petition: Cycle parking at Worcester City Museum

https://www.change.org/p/worcestershire-county-council-cycle-parking-at-worcester-city-museum

Worcester City Museum has no public cycle parking. The City Museum is situated on a cycle lane. Cycle parking would mean that City Museum visitors can make sustainable transport choices and help ease the City's traffic congestion.
