Public Service Reform

The government has asked councils in Northamptonshire to make proposals to replace the existing two tier system of local government – a county council responsible for some functions and  seven boroughs and districts with responsibility for other local government functions – with all purpose councils, also known as unitary councils.

This section of our website provides some key background documents and a link to the consultation document and response form. The consultation on proposed changes to Northamptonshire councils can be found at and runs until 22nd July.
