We want your views!
Kettering Borough Council is consulting with residents on whether or not to set up a Town Council for the town of Kettering.
Kettering town is the only part of the Borough of Kettering which does not have a town or parish council. It is expected that the Borough Council will be abolished as part of local government reform in the county, with effect from April 2021.
Kettering Borough Council has decided to consult on the creation of a Town Council. The Town Council would look to:
• Take on some of the civic leadership role for Kettering
• Carry out a number of representative roles on behalf of the local people
• Possibly undertake other functions as determined by the new unitary
Please view the consultation document and answer the questions to help the Council decide on whether or not to set up a town council for Kettering.
