2014 Scottish independence referendum

Dorking independence campaign

18 Sep, 2014

The Dorking and Leatherhead Advertiser leads a campaign for an independent council for the Surrey commuter town of Dorking:

While the decision will not have the same long-lasting effects as the vote on Scottish independence, councillors, business leaders and leading community figures could soon ask townsfolk if they would be in favour of establishing a new council to bring more powers to a local level.
It says an online poll found the majority of people would be in favour of bringing a town council to Dorking, depending on how much they would have to pay.
