rogue council it seems to me. More banks are to be

closed in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire as people do more

which could scrap the seven district councils AND the County Council

Editor Tim Iredale. There are currently seven district

councils covering Lincolnshire plus the county council,

so is it time to merge The leader of Lincolnshire

County Council wants I think the reason we are doing

the way we have been We have done it on a

by the county council. I think it's the start

of their campaign for what they have sought for a long time,

which is a county unitary Lincolnshire County Council
