Re: Goodbye Woking Borough Council? (by Cllr Ann-Marie Barker)

I think the Lib Dems overestimate the joys of getting ride of Surrey CC. It will ost lots of money and Woking will end up bundeled with Guildford in a cinderella type relationship.

In short Woking is too small to be unitary council, but not large enough to benefit from being in a unitary authority with its larger neighbour.

Its a bad idea .....

The proposals for local govt are still due out in a paper in July. However it has been suggested that this may be delayed now that Ruth Kelly has taken over from David Milliband.

I've heard the suggestion you mention about Woking merging with Guildford and Waverley and also Surrey County Council breaking into two or three areas. The proposals are supposedly going to allow for a degree of local self determination.
