NBC Meeting Monday 14th May 2018
Thank you Mr Mayor
Has any consideration been given to the Social and Economic impact of a West Northants Authority
on the residents of Northampton?
Nearly a third of our county’s residents live in Northampton
Our population has grown 34% since 1992
The most recent Ofsted report found our children’s services still require improvement
Our Northampton Borough contains major pockets of deprivation in the central and eastern areas
16 of our wards are among the most deprived 20% in the country
8 in 10 commuting journeys are made by car due to the limitations of our local transport network
Daily road congestion in Northampton still proves a challenge and need to be urgently addressed
There is still an ongoing shortfall of new social and affordable housing within Northampton
These are some of the many issues that still need urgently addressing
What steps are the blue side of the chamber taking to convince our residents of the risk and impact of a two unitary Northamptonshire?
We must fight for Northampton
And ensure we get the best outcome for our residents
