Members from Corby, East Northants, Kettering, Northamptonshire County and Wellingborough have met for the first time as a Joint Committee to consider all of the work needed to create the new North Northants Council.
At its inaugural meeting (24 June 2019), the Joint Committee elected Cllr Martin Griffiths, Leader of Borough of Wellingborough Council as Chair with Cllr Tom Beattie of Corby Borough Council as vice-chair. More »
The committee then agreed terms of reference, standing orders including how the public can have their say at future meetings and establishing four working groups for the unitary programme – Governance, Statutory Officer Appointments, Independent Remuneration Panel and Terms of Reference. The committee decided that representatives on each working group could be drawn from the wider membership of the north councils with five members being appointed to each group.
Cllr Martin Griffiths, said: "This committee will pave the way for the shadow authority to deliver the new unitary council for the north. By bringing the five councils together to represent residents from across the north, we can work collaboratively to create an authority of which we can all be proud. We have an enormous amount of work ahead of us but I'm confident that this united approach will enable us to build a council which delivers the services our residents need and to re-build the reputation of our great county."
The next meeting takes place at Borough Council of Wellingborough at 6.30pm on Monday, 16 September 2019. » Less
