District Council leaders are calling on Leicestershire County Council to work with them to fully investigate options for the future of local government organisation in the county.
The leaders have written to the county council this week and urged it to consider dropping its recently announced proposal to investigate creating a single unitary authority for Leicestershire.
They have called for an urgent meeting of the leaders of the district, city and county councils to discuss a more collaborative approach.
The letter has been sent by leaders of Blaby, Charnwood, Harborough, Hinckley and Bosworth, Melton, North West Leicestershire and Oadby and Wigston councils.
The leaders’ joint letter can be seen here.
