Unitary Status

Apr 11 2010 - 15:29
Norwich City Council is under a statutory duty to implement a unitary council for Norwich starting on 1 April 2011, having received  parliamentary approval for the plans, Regardless of the announcement, the Norwich City Unison branch’s aim remains the same – to protect jobs and services. We have been through a lot of change recently, and this will mean more. We understand any worry or concern that members may be feeling but can reassure you that the branch is engaged in the process and will offer support as needed throughout.

The Boundary Committee for England yesterday published two new draft proposals for unitary local government in Norfolk for consultation - a single Norfolk council and a two-unitary solution with a 'Greater Norwich' council and one for the rest of Norfolk.  Final recommendations will be made to the Secretary of State on 15 July.

The date for the Boundary Committee's final recommendation has been delayed from 13 February to 15 July by the Secretary of State, meaning the process of laying orders for new unitary authorities in Norfolk, Suffolk and Devon through parliament is likely to be delayed until the end of 2009.

The Boundary Committee published it's draft proposals today for a single unitary authority in Norfolk - but has left the option of a 'doughnut' and a 'wedge' on the table.  The annoucement has come as a surprise to many. In Norfolk, the Committee proposes a single unitary authority which would cover the whole county and include Lowestoft.

Unitary Status for greater Norwich will have a big impact on our branch. Many UNISON members will transfer from Norfolk County Council and neighbouring district councils and there will be other unions such as Unite, GMB, and NUT recognised at the authority. The main considerations for our members will be the new staffing structure, and transferring the majority of staff to the new authority under TUPE regulations.

Following Norwich City Council's unsuccessful bid for unitary status in January 2007, the Secretary of State asked the Boundary Committee, part of the Electrocal Commission, to advise if there could be an alternative pattern for Unitary government in Norfolk. Norwich City Council has since submitted a bid for unitary status on enlarged boundaries, including areas currently controlled by Broadland and South Norfolk District Councils such as Sprowston, Trowse and Costessey.
