The Welsh Government’s latest proposals for reforming local government are at https://consultations.gov.wales/sites/default/files/consultation_doc_files/170130-white-paper-en.pdf. Responses are required by 11 April. The approach is focused on more regional working where collaboration is shown to be beneficial. Areas where this may be the case include economic development and transport, both of which have or had regional arrangements, and most aspects of land use planning, where it is less well developed. The White Paper is over sixty pages long with much to consider.
