Should the number of councillors serving Colchester be slashed?
9:00am Tuesday 4th March 2014 in News
COLCHESTER residents can vote to cut the number of local councillors serving them after a new consultation was launched.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has proposed the number of councillors elected to Colchester Council should be cut from 60 to 51.
The consultation, which follows talks with the political parties represented on the authority, could save around £100,000 a year.
Max Caller, chairman of the independent commission, said: “This is your chance to shape your council for the future."
