Town council review will not be investigated

Following on from the low response rate to the recent consultation over the potential creation of a town council for Spalding, South Holland District Council will not be investigating this matter further.

We would like to thank all of those individuals who responded. We received 454 responses, which fell a considerable way short of the target response rate that we set. Of those responses, 269 were in favour and 185 against.

We do not consider this response sufficient to justify spending officer time and taxpayers' money on a full review into setting up a town council.

However, if in future we were presented with sufficient numbers in favour of a town council to warrant starting a governance review, we would pursue this.
