THERE’S no going back over a decision to split the county in two by setting up two councils governing East and West Cheshire.
The House of Lords has now backed the Commons’ decision to support the change in spite of a vociferous campaign by opponents.

Instead Cheshire will be governed by just two one-stop councils which do everything from highways and education to planning and environmental health.
