Community Governance Review

Community Governance Review 2019

In 2019, Kettering Borough Council agreed to consult on the potential to create a Town Council for Kettering town, and on consequential boundary changes to accommodate the Hanwood Park urban extension within the town area. 

A consultation took place between the 1st September and 31st October 2019.  Apart from general publicity, online paper consultation was targeted at community groups, statutory partners  and residents in Kettering and the adjacent parishes.  Hard copies were distributed to libraries, KBC offices, GP surgeries and other suitable outlets.

We want your views!

A Statement of Recommendations document has been drafted which outlines the Borough Council’s views on the creation of a Town Council for the currently unparished area of Kettering, together with consequential boundary revisions to the parishes of Cranford, Barton Seagrave and Burton Latimer. The proposals set out in the Statement of Recommendations are now out for consultation, prior to the Council making a final decision at its meeting on the 22nd April 2020.  

We would like your views on the proposals in the statement.
