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 West Northants Joint Committee has been set up that is made up of councillors from the four current councils. It’s chaired by Cllr Jonathan Nunn, Leader of Northampton Borough Council with Cllr Chris Millar of Daventry District Council as vice-chair. This committee paves the way for the shadow authority to deliver the new unitary council for the west. Its first meeting was held in March 2019 see agenda and minutes for more details.
