A West Northants Unitary? Whats in it for my residents?

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
