To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Recognises the role that local government plays in delivering public services to communities across Wales.
2. Notes with concern the uncertainty that the lack of clarity regarding local government reform is having on the delivery of effective services.
3. Acknowledges that more has to be done to address voter apathy in Wales given that, in the 2012 local government elections, overall turnout in Wales was low, at an average of 38.9 per cent, which was a 4 per cent drop from the previous local election turnout in 2008.
4. Calls on the Welsh Government to outline a provisional timetable for its planned reforms of Welsh local authorities, and to engage in a robust consultation process.
