Highlighting issues that matter to you 2017- v2

Published: Tuesday, 19 December 2017

Northampton Borough Council is inviting residents to put forward their ideas for the Overview & Scrutiny Committee to investigate over the next 12 months.

The Committee, which is made up of members of all political groups at the Council, can look into any issue affecting residents of the Borough with the aim of improving the town as a place to work, live and visit. Up to four of the most popular subjects gathered from public suggestions will be taken forward for investigation during 2018. These will be decided at a Committee meeting in April 2018.

Councillor Jamie Lane, Chair of Northampton Borough Council’s Overview & Scrutiny Committee said: “Last year we received over 55 suggestions from the public and as a result the top suggestions taken forward for the Committee to look into during 2017 were: tourism and culture, cemeteries and becoming a more dementia friendly town.

“We all want to work together to help make our town a better place to live, work and visit and so we encourage everyone to get involved and put their ideas forward by 28 February 2018.”

Anyone who would like to get involved, can input their ideas by taking part in an online survey Alternatively hard copies of the survey are available from the One Stop Shop.
