Councillor fails in bid to axe Lincolnshire County Council
Ashley Baxter also mocked for repeated attempts to be elected to it
South Kesteven district councillors have voted overwhelmingly to reject a bid to abolish Lincolnshire County Council.
Independent Ashley Baxter submitted a motion to full council last week calling for SKDC to lobby government for this, claiming the Lincoln-based council was too remote and duplicates services, causing confusion amongst the public. He said: “We should devolve power and authority to more local areas.”
