Elections to be postponed until 2020

The Secretary of State for Communities, the Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP has laid before Parliament and Order to delay elections in Northamptonshire due in May 2019 until May 2020. This will mean that the next elections for the Town Council will be held in May 2020.

Government Ministers are seeking evidence on proposals to shake-up the way local government operates in Northamptonshire as part of a public consultation launched on 29 November 2018.

Communities Secretary the Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP said:

"I'm determined to ensure the people of Northamptonshire receive the very best public services from local authorities which are well-connected, make best use of public funds and give people more choice over how their communities are run.

"I look forward to hearing views on the proposals from the people of Northamptonshire."
