South Gloucestershire council: Reduce the number of elected councillors by 25% across the authority.

South Gloucestershire Council have and continue to make cuts to its Staff, Services (Inc Front Line Services), Community Grants and assets to name a few; to save around £45 Million over a three year period.

To date, there has been no mention of a reduction to elected councillors as a cost saving measure.

Reducing the number of elected councillors by 25% would save the authority around £200,000.00 every year and almost £1 Million, every four year term.

There can be no argument that any reduction would impact on representation for the public as a large number of councillors currently fail to work for, or effectively represent their communities at present, proving that the number of councillors is too high.
