Hebburn to regain home rule!! Not a chance.

I can only repeat what I said in an earler post in this thread which basically translates to "not a chance". |
And if, much as it attracts, there was a wish to return Hebburn to the equivalent of its old UDC status for issues which it might control, I very much doubt it Norman. It would take an enormous Political earthquake in S TYneside to garner a majority even vaguely interested in the concept.
That would include people in South Shields voting for less investment in their area (Turkeys and Christmas comes to mind) and collectively the South Shields Wards, as you point out, have the largest population mass, most councilors and therefore the clout...
AND.... A recent commission has proposed fewer unitary authorities nationally which slims the chances even further.
