LOCAL GOVERNMENT REPRGANISATION (LGR)
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.
