Polling District, Places and Stations Review - Conclusion


In September 2017 an LGA Peer Review, looking at the finances and governance of the Northamptonshire County Council, reported that "Time is running out for Northamptonshire County Council". The report precipitated a chain of events that will ultimately see the abolition of the county council and all the borough and district councils in the county, and the creation of a new unitary structure.


On the 1 April 2021 two Unitary Authorities were established: North Northamptonshire covering the  Wellingborough, Kettering, Corby, Rushden and Thrapston areas and West Northamptonshire covering the Daventry, Northampton, Towcester and Brackley areas.
