Online survey to help shape new council for west Suffolk ahead of decision by Local Government Boundary Commission for England

According to the Bury Free Press here

The move to create a single council for west Suffolk is being put to groups, councils and the public to help shape the new council ward boundaries.

St Edmundsbury and Forest Heath councils are going forward to create a single authority which is expected to result in some £800,000 in savings and efficiencies as well as the annual £4 million already saved by existing shared services between the two councils.

It is also expected to better support and meet challenges ahead, such as increasing population, more demands on health care and housing, alongside reduced national funding.

Now for a Greater Ipswich Unitary Authority without wards gerrymandered to help Labour.
