Following the resignation of the majority of councillors at Desborough Town Council, it has had insufficient councillors for it to be able to carry out its functions as a Town Council.

Kettering Borough Council has, therefore, been asked to co-opt councillors to Desborough Town Council, and issued a Temporary Appointment Order on 16th March 2018, appointing the following people with immediate effect:

·         Lesley Sambrook Smith - an experienced Council Clerk who is currently Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Northamptonshire County Association of Local Councils (NCALC)

·         Gordon Shorley - currently Chairman of Ashley Parish Council and Vice President of NCALC

·         Claire Tilley - an experienced Council Clerk who is currently the Clerk to Cranford Parish Council

An additional three councillors, in addition to the remaining two councillors mean that Desborough Town Council has sufficient councillors to carry out its functions, and a meeting of the Town Council is being arranged. Details will be published by the Clerk to the Town Council.
