Oxfordshire leaders in bid to scrap county council

A “ground-breaking” bid to abolish Oxfordshire County Council has been proposed by the county’s five district council leaders.

Plans to create four unitary councils are part of a devolution bid that would give the authorities greater powers.

Two councils in Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire would also join the new structure under the proposals.

Oxfordshire’s deputy leader Rodney Rose said he would “regret anything” that saw the county’s identity disappear.

In a joint statement, the leaders of West Oxfordshire, Oxford, Cherwell, South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse councils, said they were asking the government to agree to the plan and support a devolution deal that would allow joint working with the NHS, police and Local Enterprise Partnership.
