Nottinghamshire County Council has decided to drop its reorganisation plans, which the leadership had hoped would save the authority millions each year.
Councillors yesterday decided against holding a formal consultation on plans to replace the county’s two-tier system with a unitary authority.
It was hoped the plan - which financial experts Deloitte described as ‘robust’ — would deliver £27m of annual savings through a reduction in senior management positions, support services, councillors, and by finding other savings.
However, county council leader Kay Cutts today announced she would withdraw the plan.
