Government legislation has been passed to create a new West Northamptonshire unitary council serving the areas of Daventry District, Northampton and South Northants, and a new North Northamptonshire unitary authority serving Wellingborough, Kettering, Corby and East Northants. These two new councils will start providing services to the residents and businesses of Northamptonshire in April next year.
A considerable amount of work has gone into the preparation for the start date and there is a large amount of information available, too much to be duplicated on our website. Should you wish to obtain up to date information then we would suggest that you visit the North Northamptonshire Unitary Authority Website using the following link:
Northants County Association of Local Councils (NCALC) have kindly provided a simple guide which you might find useful. (link below)
It is too early to say what effect the new Authority will have on our village and the operation of the Parish Council, our guess is that for the first year little might change.
We can assure you that the Parish Council are watching developments closely.
