Calling For A Referendum On 'Super-Parishes'

The Council is consulting on a plan to possibly create several 'super parishes' to cover areas of Swindon that do not currently have parish councils. We feel that the current proposals will only increase Council Tax whilst not improving local services, and this is not something we could agree to. Such a major change should be decided directly by the people of Swindon, and we will call for a referendum on the issue so then residents can decide on whether they agree with the idea of more parish councils or not.
