Regional boundaries change and the debate on the optimal size for a region in terms of delivering public services is a long-standing and ongoing one. Some local authorities may choose to merge, some inter-community services may see their boundaries change (e.g. districts are incorporated or reassigned to another authority, responsibilities are broadened), etc.
