THE Secretary of State has today (Monday) extended the deadline for the Boundary Committee to provide advice concerning the reorganisation of local Government in Devon, from February 13 to July 15, 2009.

Responding to the delay, Councillor Brian Greenslade leader of Devon County Council said:

"In the current economic climate, the continued uncertainty is unhelpful and we need to find an early resolution.

"This delay almost certainly means that the implementation of any eventual unitary recommendations will be delayed to April 2011.

"The county council's elections in June this year continue as planned.
