The Greater London Council to make a come-back?

London boroughs study 'super council' merger

While not entirely HPC related, this proposal is significant and may well set a precedent. If nothing else, this will surely lead to a large number of redundancies as services overlap. However, I see that the piggies at the top will be alright Jack: "Under the plans, each authority would keep its council leaders and local ward councillors".

    I must admit, those were my first thoughts when they mentioned it on the telly this morning.

  • The three Boroughs mentioned are all Tory and all geographically next to each other. I can’t see the idea working without both of these ingredients. Presumably with separate council leaders and councillors the merger would quickly become unmerged if the elected reps fell out over something.

  • Depends whether they’re planning to merge everything, or just merge some services. Things like payroll and IT could be merged easily since they’re relatively apolitical; but other services might have a fight on their hands.
