Break up the councils

Comment 23rd July 2010

The councils are a historic anachronism and make little sense in the 21st century. Towns and cities should be the municipalities that decide on local jurisdictions. My suggestion is to abolish councils, which although elected, are not true representative bodies. 

Why does this matter?

Councils in London have shown they cannot coordinate between each other. Roadworks taking place in one council can make key roads in London unworkable. The idea of a councils is archaic. New York City significantly reduced the power of its boroughs (similar model) and the city has become far more efficient, while still preserving local power.
