The latest updates on preparations for a proposed new unitary authority in North Northamptonshire were discussed at a public meeting in Wellingborough. Councillors from Corby, East Northants, Kettering, Northamptonshire County and Wellingborough Councils met for the second time as the North Northants Joint Committee on Monday 16 September 2019
After receiving an update on the programme, the committee considered recommendations from the four working groups agreed at the first meeting – Governance, Statutory Officer Appointments, Independent Remuneration Panel and Terms of Reference. The committees are working on key elements required to set up a shadow council for North Northamptonshire which would deliver the new unitary council.
