Local Government Reorganisation – A Simple Guide

We have received several requests for a short, simple, plain-English guide to Local Government Reorganisation; something that can be cut and pasted onto community web sites or newsletters to help inform and engage members of the public. It was quite a challenge to write a short, simple guide but one I was happy to take on. The draft was road-tested on my 17 and 13 year old children (almost willingly!) and I thank them for their suggestions for further simplifications. There are two versions, one for North Northamptonshire (Word, PDF) and one for West Northamptonshire (Word, PDF). They are provided for your free use.

Draft Budget for West Northamptonshire Council Published

The first draft budget for West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) was published yesterday with the papers for the meeting of the WNC shadow executive committee being held on 5 January 2021. In a joint statement, Cllr Ian McCord, Leader of the West Northants Shadow Authority and Anna Earnshaw, Chief Executive, said "We have an opportunity to deliver better and more joined up services for residents and in a more cost efficient and effective way. West Northamptonshire Council is focussed on becoming a greener and cleaner authority, and supporting an already great place in which people can live and work, and visit. The Council aims to support the recovery and growth of the local economy, while establishing strong and safe communities with good housing. We want our residents to have the best prospects and the skills to succeed and our children to have the best start in life." The draft budget will be discussed on 5 January 2021 and, if approved, a consultation period will go live on 6 January. Following the consultation, final budgets proposals will be put to the shadow executive on 12 February before appearing before the full shadow authority for final approval on 23 February 2021.

Police & Fire Service Budget - please respond

Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC), Stephen Mold, has launched a budget consultation to ask people about their priorities for the county's fire and police services, and how much they would pay towards them. The PFCC has responsibility for setting the budget for both Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service and Northamptonshire Police. The budgets are made up from money raised through the council tax and from central government grants. Approximately 18% of the total council tax bill paid by a Northamptonshire household goes towards policing and fire services. The consultation opened on 21 December 2020 and closes on 11 January 2021. Responses are invited from everyone. All responses should be submitted via https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WCNHXRM.
