East Kent Councils Merger Proposal

Discsussions are taking place about the possibility of four District Councils (Dover, Shepway, Canterbury and Thanet) merging to form East Kent Council. Some District Councillors have been reporting recently that the need to cut budgets year-on-year means that the individual councils are not sustainable in the long term. Forming one council would allow economies of scale… that’s the idea. Read about the proposals on this link and form your own view.
