The consultation will close on 8 October, following which the two councils will decide whether or not to submit a proposal (along with the results of the consultation) to the Secretary of State
for Local Government in November.
The Secretary of State would have the ultimate power to decide if the new Council is to be formed and over what period Council Tax should be equalised. If the proposal is approved, a review of
the number of Councillors would be commenced by the Boundary Commission to determine the exact number of Councillors for the new Council. The earliest the new Council would be formed
is April 2020 with elections to the new Council in May 2020.
