Welsh councils call for urgent talks on reorganisation

February 3, 2014 3:29 pm

Council leaders in Wales are calling for urgent talks with First Minister Carwyn Jones to put forward alternative proposals for reorganisation. Earlier this year a Welsh Government backed inquiry into public services concluded that the 22 Welsh county councils must be cut by half. The Williams Commission suggested reducing council numbers by mergers using existing boundaries. However, the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) said it wanted to set up a task force to carry out a “pragmatic examination of existing boundaries”. The WLGA also said a “properly costed financial analysis” was needed, but council leaders accepted that changes would happen.
