Dyfed Edwards calls for north Wales councils to merge to save cash

Help

Hundreds of millions of pounds could be saved if the existing six north Wales local authorities were replaced by just two, says a council leader.

Gwynedd's Dyfed Edwards said one council for the north east and another for north west Wales could address a "significant financial challenge".

Councils are already creating regional structures to co-ordinate services.

But the Welsh Local Government Association said it did not support the call for reorganisation.
