Countdown to the new North Northamptonshire Council

Published Thursday, 07 January 2021

There are just three months to go before the creation of the new North Northamptonshire Council, with vesting day on 1st April 2021.

The new authority will take over responsibility for the services currently delivered by the Borough Council of Wellingborough, Corby Borough Council, East Northamptonshire Council, Kettering Borough Council and many of the services provided by Northamptonshire County Council.

Local authorities in the area are working closely to ensure a smooth transition to the new North Northamptonshire Council.

The focus for day one will be to provide continuity and efficient delivery in the services to residents and businesses. A programme of continuous service improvement will remain in place and will remain a priority moving forwards.

Cllr Russell Roberts, Leader of North Northamptonshire Shadow Authority, said: "Clearly we are all living in very challenging times.

"The continuity of public services has never been so important.  Providing vital services to our local residents will remain our number one priority. 

"We do have a real opportunity to do things in a way that makes an even bigger difference in the future and we are committed to further improving public services in the area.

"The pandemic continues to see public services at full stretch, but this does not dent our ambitions for this fresh chapter of local government."

A coordinated public information campaign will soon be launched that will help ensure that local residents and businesses are fully aware of what is happening and when.
