Two New Unitary Authorities For Northamptonshire

Two brand new unitary councils will be established in Northamptonshire on 1 April 2021, the Government has confirmed.
The West Northamptonshire unitary will cover Daventry, Northampton and South Northamptonshire, and the North Northamptonshire unitary will cover Corby, East Northants, Kettering and Wellingborough. The existing district and borough councils and Northamptonshire County Council will all be abolished.
The Secretary of State, James Brokenshire, has reviewed all the evidence and representations received, and has now decided that replacing the eight councils with two unitary authorities is in the best interests of the residents of Northamptonshire.
Parliamentary Orders will follow later this year and there will be elections to the Shadow Authorities in May 2020. Shadow Executives for the two unitaries will be selected from those elected and will determine the structure, budget and service delivery models for the new councils.
Services which complement one another but are currently divided between the district, borough and county councils, such as bin collections, waste disposal, planning and roads, will be brought together under each of the two unitary councils.
Leaders of the current authorities said that, now that a decision has been made, the preparations to build a better future for Northamptonshire's residents and businesses, providing more responsive, innovative services, could continue with certainty.
