Ahead of the Nottinghamshire County Council Policy Committee meeting today, Ashfield District Council Leader Cllr Zadrozny wishes to put on record that the Council does not support the proposal to abolish District Councils.

The Leader of the Council has met with other District and Borough Leaders and has written to the Leader of the County Council suggesting the County works with Districts to consider all options and undertakes a detailed options appraisal. 

It is unlikely the proposal will be supported by the Government given the local opposition to it and that the process will divert time, money and energy away from other priorities.
