This week has been a challenging one regarding the Shoreline-Boston Mayflower merger. The council met on Thursday to consider any recommendations to Cabinet suitably arranged on Friday. With only a small number of residents having participated in the consultation process, the outcome from them, was favourable to the merger. Many Labour Councillors were torn on what decision to make, however news came out on Tuesday Last week that article 93 was to be enacted by the Tory Government. This means that in 6 months Time Shoreline would be free to merge without Council Consent.

The recommendation proposed was:- was to accept the merger in principle on condition that a legally binding memorandum of understanding could be negotiated between shoreline and the Council.(obviously this has to be able to survive the merger). This passed at Full council and the Cabinet duly met and also voted through the recommendation. Now it's a wait and see game, will negotiations be successful, will residents be looked after?  well according to the new interim Chief exec(of the merged company) they will!

I live in hope!
