Would a unitary council be better?

In recent months we have seen the amalgamation of local authorities on waste, refuse collection, planning and building control to save costs.

In East Sussex should we now be following the example of other counties and abandoning the archaic local three tier local government system (County, District, Town/Parish) with all its duplication of effort and introduce unitary authorities?
