Plan to save local councils over £15m canceled

East Lindsey District Council

A strategic alliance between East Lindsey District Council and Boston Borough Council that was planned to save more than £15m over 10 years has been shelved after Boston Borough Council withdrew.

East Lindsey District Council strongly supported the proposal when it met, Boston Borough Council withdrew the item from its agenda after a number of hours of debate.

The Leader of East Lindsey District Council, Councillor Craig Leyland, said: “It is disappointing that Boston Borough Council didn’t agree to enter into a strategic alliance.”

“East Lindsey District Council is a strong, stable and successful organisation and we will continue to work hard to improve services to our communities, whilst continuing to explore further partnership working opportunities that add value to what we do.”
