Norfolk local government is set for a shakeup with plans for unitary authorities or a single super council to be set up for the whole county. The problem is, nobody seems to have told South Norfolk Council or Breckland.
Breckland Council are determined to farm out some departments to outside companies (presumably meaning the staff getting farmed out would not be guaranteed an equal chance of getting jobs in the new super councils, after all only existing council staff will be considered for jobs). What utter chaos this will cause if some parts of Norfolk have farmed out their services to private companies when all the services have to be merged together.
Then there is South Norfolk, who are advertising a £100,000 a year vacancy for chief executive when the council may not exist in a few months time. Presumably South Norfolk Tories who run the council feel that allowing to the council to have an acting chief exec is not the way to go. South Norfolk electors who will have to pay the £100,000 salary (and redundancy pay presumably if the merger of the councils goes ahead) would probably disagree.
