would be an interesting concept.....and it might work in theory....

Of course some people might be hesitant albeit almost defiant to give up any form of official power and pay any local office that is affected might hold...

In essense no city council members would approve this if it would affect them directly.

This concept has been kicked around the QCA for thirty years. Back then it might have been viable...now one whould just one giant slum...instead of four smaller ones...
