Northamptonshire Local Government Reform

LGR Services

Would all services of the county council, boroughs and districts transfer to the two unitary councils if this is the proposed option?

Yes. All services would be provided by the new unitary councils.

What changes will residents see to services?

There shouldn’t be any immediate changes as a direct result of the restructure. Services that are provided to residents do change over time and councils are always looking for ways to improve services.

Would my bin be emptied on the same day?

It’s very unlikely that changes to services like bin collections would happen from April 2020 as a result of the introduction of unitary councils. However, councils may make improvements to any of the services they provide in order to provide residents with the best service. Any changes will be communicated to you well in advance of them happening.
