Wellingborough businesses have been invited to attend a consultation breakfast event on Tuesday, 17 July, about the future of local government in Northamptonshire.
Northamptonshire businesses are invited to attend a consultation breakfast event, hosted by the Federation of Small Businesses on behalf of all the Northamptonshire Councils, on the reform of Northamptonshire local government and its potential impact on the county’s businesses.
All eight councils across Northamptonshire are working together to respond to an urgent invitation from Government to make proposals on the restructuring of local government. This follows the publication of the significant financial challenges of Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) and the Inspector’s recommendation that two new unitary authorities be introduced.
Northamptonshire’s Councils are seeking feedback from businesses on their proposal to introduce two new unitary authorities to simplify local government, make efficiency savings more achievable, aiming to deliver services in a sustainable way. For more information on this process please visit the dedicated information page Future Northants.
This consultation event will take place on Tuesday 17 July, from 8am to 10am, at the Kettering Park Hotel, Kettering Parkway, Kettering NN15 6XT.
This event provides a unique opportunity to put forward your views on the future of Northamptonshire and is essential for putting business concerns at the heart of the reform process. To confirm your place at this event please register for your free place on Eventbrite here by Friday 13th July.
If you cannot attend the FSB event, there will also be another business event in Northampton, please visit the Future Northants website for more information. Here you can also find out more information and give feedback by completing the consultation questionnaire.
