Northampton Borough Council

Northampton Borough Council  proposes a challenging programme of internal cost cutting and restructuring measures in order to provide a freeze in council tax for hard-pressed local families in the budget proposals for 2013/14.

In a difficult financial climate, proposals to create a more efficient organisation would see the Borough Council restructuring departments and support services to contribute the majority of the overall savings that have to be made.

You can find out more about our key proposals.  For full details, please refer to our key documents below.
