East Northamptonshire Council authorises boundary changes

Published Friday, 25 April 2014

Changes accurately reflect the interests and identities of our local communities

Members of East Northamptonshire Council have approved numerous parish boundary changes across the district.

The council consulted all householders who might be affected, together with district councillors, as well as parish and town councils.

Full Council met on 23 April to authorise external boundary changes for 10 parishes; changes to the way two parish councils are set up and changes to internal boundaries for two parishes which also affects the district wards in those areas.

Steven North, leader of East Northamptonshire Council, said:

"We’d like to thank everyone who took part in the consultation on this boundary review. Local knowledge and opinion is vital to this process and we feel these changes accurately reflect the interests and identities of our local communities."

Subject to being agreed by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England, these changes will come into effect for the May 2015 parish council elections.

To make this happen, the council must draw up a legal document known as a re-organisation order which sets out each of the changes that are being made. This, along with maps and a copy of the committee report which set out why we agreed to make the changes are available online at www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk/parishreview and at the council's offices in Thrapston, Rushden and Oundle.
