Northumberland Unitary Authority

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 16 October 2007

24. To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government when she expects elections to take place for a Northumberland unitary authority. (158174)

In our Discussion Paper ‘Councils' Proposals for Unitary Local Government: An Approach to Implementation’ published on 22 August we invited the views of those councils potentially affected by restructuring on when elections for any new unitary authorities should be held. That paper indicated that the options for elections in May 2008 or May 2009 are finely balanced and we are now considering the views we have received.
