By the time the next local elections come around in May 2024 the Local Government Reform Act 2014 will be ten years old. Will the trends in the turnover or the workload of county councillors be looked at? I remember before the Moorhead report a questionnaire about workload was sent around to councillors. Is there analysis on that trend? If the workload is so overwhelming and people have to have another full-time job as well, it creates a lot of difficulty. We might not be getting the best efficiencies at local level if that is the case.
