Consultation on a re-structure of local government in Northamptonshire from Monday 18 June until 22 July 2018.
A government Inspection of Northamptonshire County Council recommended that plans be developed for two unitary authorities. That would mean abolishing NCC and the 7 Borough Councils including Kettering and replacing them by two new bodies. All eight authorities in Northamptonshire are now working on a proposal.

Reporting suspicious or criminal behaviour
Northamptonshire Police's Rural Crime Team asks:
“If you’re a victim of crime or see something that doesn’t seem right, follow your gut instinct and report it to us, because we need the information you have – you are the eyes and ears of your community. Don’t worry that you’re wasting our time. No matter how small an incident, we need to know about it so we have an accurate picture of rural criminal activity to help us take targeted action against it.”
The rural crime team is especially keen to encourage people to be aware of and report wildlife-related crime.
Report crime and suspicious activity by filling out the online reporting form
or call 101. In an emergency, dial 999. Information can also be shared anonymously with Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111.
