Corby Borough Council and Kettering Borough Council have agreed to jointly look at the establishment of a shared service for the provision of refuse collection, grounds maintenance and street cleansing.
The intention is to create a single team that will provide services in both council areas and will be managed by both authorities. This change in how the service is delivered will allow improved value for money and increased resilience for both councils.
Further details of the shared service will now be put together in preparation for an expected start date of 1st January 2019.
Cllr Tom Beattie, Leader of Corby Borough Council said,
“We look forward to working on this exciting proposal with Kettering Borough Council. We both share the same aspirations to achieve improved service delivery and greater customer satisfaction”.
Cllr Russell Roberts, Leader of Kettering Borough Council said,
“We are delighted that Corby have trusted Kettering Borough Council to partner with and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership which will benefit residents both as service users and as council tax payers”.
