Deputy Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Cllr Michael Payne, today joined calls for Cllr Kay Cutts to consider her position as leader of Nottinghamshire County Council after it was revealed plans for a ‘super council’ have been shelved indefinitely

Mr Payne said: “This has been a costly and flawed pet project from the start, and it’s disastrous when it comes at a time when the county council it is hiking charges for the most vulnerable disabled people in our county.

“If Kay Cutts had any self respect, having ignored the public’s opinion in the first round of consultation, she should consider her position as leader.

“She has damaged relationships, she had lots the confidence of county councillors, and lost the confidence of the public.

“We have had almost 7,000 responses in Gedling to our consultation on the future of council services, and I think that’s going to come out conclusively in favour of people wanting to keep their local council.

“But it’s important to remember that this hasn’t gone away completely. Councillor Cutts still wants to persue this idea, so we are going to continue our campaign, and will keep calling for he residents of Gedling to have their say.

“This is a real victory for people power. People in Gedling have spoken loudly and clearly.”
