Consultation on the design of future local government in Northants closes in four days

Consultation on the design of future local government in Northants closes in four days

There's only 4 days to go to have your say on the design of local government in Northamptonshire.

Residents, businesses and other stakeholders in the county are urged to complete the questionnaire at www.futurenorthants.co.uk by 22 July. Paper copies are also available in libraries, council offices and other local venues. Please check your council website for details of venues where you can pick up a copy. More »

All eight authorities in Northamptonshire are working on a proposal for the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government that "must command a good deal of local support", so stakeholders across the county have an opportunity to comment before a final proposal is submitted.

The Government's invitation to submit a proposal follows a Best Vale 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.

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.

A representative telephone survey, focus groups with representative groups of invited residents and engagement with other stakeholders are also taking place.

Other consultations by the local media and by individual councils have taken place at the same time, so it's really important that people respond to the official Local Government Reform Northamptonshire consultation being run by all eight Northamptonshire councils for their comments on the proposal to be considered. » Less

Northampton parks among best in England

Northampton parks among best in England

Delapré Park and Abington Park have once more been named as two of the best green spaces in England.

They will proudly continue to display the prestigious Green Flag Award, with this year marking an impressive six years in a row for Deplaré Park and five years for Abington Park.

The parks have retained their Green Flag Award status following the Council's commitment of meeting standards for providing local communities with accessible, clean and safe green spaces. More »

The awards are an international mark of quality, which recognise and reward well managed parks and green spaces, and set a benchmark standard for the management of recreational outdoor spaces.

Cabinet member for environment, Cllr Mike Hallam, said: "We're absolutely delighted to receive the Green Flag Award for not just one, but two parks in the town.

"It's a great achievement and clearly demonstrates the care and attention given by the 'Friends of Abington Park' and 'Friends of Delapre Abbey' groups, the many other volunteers, our grounds maintenance contractor and Park Rangers, who all work hard to keep the parks at their best.

"The public also have a huge part to play in the upkeep and cleanliness of the parks and I'd like to remind people to continue to respect these spaces by clearing up after themselves when they visit."

The Green Flag Award announcement comes during the Love Parks Week activities, which conclude this Saturday with a Teddy Bear's Picnic and litter pick at Bradlaugh Fields and an Alfie Bear's picnic at West Hunsbury Country Park. More details are available on the Borough Council's Facebook page. » Less
