Update on Unitary Status - October 2008

The Boundary Committee’s consultation on their draft proposals ended on 26 September. The Regional Office and the Norfolk branches have made submissions to the Committee – you can view all the submissions by clicking here.

We are keeping a close eye on the process and ensuring our involvement, for example we have met with other Norfolk branches and the regional office, as well as having regular meetings with the Director of Transformation.

We also met with the Chief Executives of the councils that support the three proposals to determine if the options meet our expectations of minimising job losses and maintaining services. We are aiming to meet with the Heads of HR at the councils soon, to ensure our concerns are taken on board.
