Re-Structure of Local Government in Northamptonshire

Consultation on a re-structure of local government in Northamptonshire has begun, with opportunities for all residents to have their say.

Formal consultation runs until 22 July 2018.

People are encouraged to have their say by going online to complete a questionnaire at www.futurenorthants.co.uk

There they will also find a detailed consultation document that fully explains the proposal.

The Government's invitation to submit a proposal follows a Best Value Inspection of Northamptonshire County Council, which concluded that its financial, cultural and governance problems could not be solved in isolation and recommended that plans be developed for two unitary authorities. More »

The Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government has asked that the eight authorities in Northamptonshire submit a proposal that meets the following criteria:

  • A single county-wide unitary is explicitly excluded as an option
  • Each new proposed authority must have a population substantially in excess of 300,000
  • The proposal must be based on existing council boundaries

Alongside the consultation website, copies of the consultation document and the questionnaire will also be available in libraries and local council offices from Monday, 25 June.

Please check Northampton Borough Council website for details of venues where you can pick up a copy. » Less

West Hunsbury Grass Verges and Litter Bins

We are getting many complaints from residents regarding the lack of verge cutting and overflowing litter bins in West Hunsbury. The Parish Council has reported these issues to NBC and are chasing them. There is a very new environmental contract in place which will take time to bring everywhere up to the standards expected. It is however important that all issues are reported so that they can be resolved. Could all residents please use this link to report any areas which need attention.

Veolia and Northampton Borough Council

Veolia ES (UK) Limited has been awarded a ten year environmental services contract by Northampton Borough Council. Worth around £130 million, the contract covers recycling and waste collections, street cleansing and grounds, allotments and cemeteries maintenance services to help the Council meet its environmental objectives. Set to commence on 4th June 2018, Veolia will work in partnership with the Council on a series of initiatives to keep the streets and parks clean, and improving recycling rates. Residents of West Hunsbury who currently use recycling boxes will change to a recycling wheeled bin during August and there will no longer be a need for recycling to be sorted. Full details will be circulated to residents.
