Community Governance Review for the Parish of Duddington with Fineshade

East Northamptonshire Council is undertaking a review of community governance arrangements for the Parish of Duddington with Fineshade. This follows receipt of a valid petition from a number of registered electors in the Fineshade area of the District requesting the separation of part of Fineshade and formation of a new Parish Meeting. The review began on Tuesday 6 March 2018 and is scheduled to run until October 2018.

In the first stage of the review, comments and proposals were invited from any individuals or organisations which have a view on whether they think any of the current parish boundaries or parish council arrangements in Duddington with Fineshade should be changed.

As part of the second stage of the review, officers considered comments received following the closing date of Monday 30 April 2018 and prepared draft proposals for consideration by Council. At the full council meeting of 23 July 2018, the following draft recommendations were approved for a second stage of consultation:-

That this Council considers that no changes should be made to the parish arrangements for Duddington with Fineshade and that this proposal is consulted upon during Stage Three of the Community Governance Review.

The Council also approved a revised timetable for the review meaning that there is now an eight week period of public consultation running from Monday 30 July to Sunday 23 September 2018.
