There’ll no doubt be one or two questions amongst councillors after the Local Government Chronicle reported talks had taken place between the leaders of Peterborough City Council and Cambridgeshire County Council, regarding the possibility of amalgamating the two authorities.
As some may remember, in 1998 Peterborough became autonomous of Cambridgeshire county council as a unitary authority, 17 years on, its seems there planning of reverting back? Q: A sensible idea or a complete and costly backwards step?
In the article, it stated:
“Cambridgeshire leader Steve Count (Con) said talks had taken place with Peterborough City Council about potentially forming a combined authority.”
