As you may be aware, local government in Northamptonshire is going through a period of transformation as it moves towards the creation of two new unitary authorities to replace the current eight councils. In order for this to be a success it is essential that those services currently provided by Northamptonshire County Council are placed on a firmer financial footing to make sure the two new unitary councils don’t inherit the significant issues faced by the authority. This needs to happen before the new councils are created to make sure they start life with transformed, affordable services and a balanced budget.
To help us in this work we want your views on what you consider to be the priorities. We want to know what services you feel are most important to you, your family and your communities, how you rate these services and what improvements could be made. We are asking these questions now and will repeat this every six months to make sure we are aware of your views on an ongoing basis.
Have your say
This survey gives background to the challenge facing the Council and sets out the different services that the Council provides and asks you how important they are to you and the wider community, how well you feel the services are currently being delivered and whether there are areas of improvement that we should focus on. The survey closes at midnight on Sunday 20th October.
Details of this and all current and recent consultations can be found on our consultation hub.
