NCC Revised Gritting Routes

Posted: Thu, 24 Jan 2019 19:42 by Samantha Hosking

Please note that NCC have revised the gritting network for both the precautionary and adverse gritting routes in Northamptonshire. In Syresham, Main Road between the B4525 and A43 slip is no longer classified as a precautionary route and so will now only be gritted during daytime hours in advance of high confidence of forecasted snow or when the forecast temperatures are not to rise above zero for 48 hours. This is now the same criteria used for gritting all other roads through Syresham. Please visit the NCC website for more information on the county's gritting network: https://www3.northamptonshire.gov.uk/councilservices/northamptonshire-highways/roads-and-streets/gritting/Pages/gritting-the-countys-roads.aspx

Local Government Reorganisation and Postponement of Parish Elections

Posted: Thu, 29 Nov 2018 16:06 by Samantha Hosking

Consultation by the Secretary of State (SoS) over plans to restructure local government in Northamptonshire which could include two unitary authorities has started Thursday, 29 November 2019.

The Government consultation has launched following proposals submitted by Northamptonshire councils back in August 2018. More »

SoS, James Brokenshire has announced that he will consult with all principal councils in Northamptonshire, principal councils neighbouring Northamptonshire, Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership, the Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner, local health bodies, the University of Northampton, and representatives of the voluntary sector.

He also welcomes views from any interested persons, including local residents and organisations.

The consultation period will run for eight weeks until 25 January 2019 and is available online at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/the-proposed-reorganisation-of-local-government-in-northamptonshire.

Paper copies will also be available in public offices and buildings of all the Northamptonshire councils.

Mr Brokenshire has also announced today that following a request from the eight Northamptonshire councils, he will bring forward an Order in Parliament to postpone district and parish elections that were due to be held in May 2019 until May 2020.

Should he decide to implement the proposal of two unitary authorities, it would have meant district and parish councillors serving only one year before unitary authority elections would be held in 2020.

He explains: "Elections in such circumstances risk confusing voters and would involve significant costs that would be hard to justify. Accordingly, I have concluded that irrespective of whatever my future decision might be on the restructuring proposal, the right course is to postpone these elections."

Cllr Ian McCord, Leader of South Northamptonshire Council commented: "Whatever we think about the proposal, or the circumstances that led us here, I am pleased after all these delays that we are now moving forwards." » Less
