This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition Hold a referendum on whether or not we want a Solent Combined Authority
The local authorities of these areas are proposing sweeping changes to the way local government works. This will result in the creation of a new Solent Combined Authority headed by an Elected Mayor.
An online consultation began on 22nd July 2016 with little account taken of the need for accessibility for those with disabilities.
We note with concern that this consultation started during the busy summer holiday period when many people are away or otherwise occupied.This is a matter of considerable concern for residents of Portsmouth, Southampton and the IOW. It also disenfranchises many students who study in the two cities and on the island but may be away during the summer.
