All eight existing councils have pledged to make full use of the knowledge and expertise available across the county and further afield to create two new successful councils.
As well as our knowledgeable staff and councillors, local communities, partners in health, the voluntary sector, the business sector, education and other tiers of government will all help to shape the new services. A more joined-up approach will provide better services for residents and businesses. For more details, see the Prospectus for Change.
A North Northants Joint Committee has been set up that is made up of councillors from the four current councils. It’s chaired by Cllr Martin Griffiths, Leader of Borough of Wellingborough Council with Cllr Tom Beattie of Corby Borough Council as vice-chair. This committee paves the way for the shadow authority to deliver the new unitary council for the north. Its first meeting was held in June 2019 – see the agenda and minutes for all meetings held so far.
