Following Corby’s additional public meeting on unitary authority proposals, held yesterday, Corby Borough Council is extending their deadline for completed consultation forms to be submitted to ensure residents have enough time to have their say.
Corby Borough Council is holding its own consultation process as well as being part of the county wide consultation. Corby Borough Council’s consultation documents were delivered to all households within the Borough and these can now be returned up until Friday 20th July 2018.
Leader of Corby Borough Council, Cllr Tom Beattie, said:
‘We have listened to some concerns residents have had and want to ensure everyone that wants to have their say in Corby can do so. Anyone that hasn’t got a consultation form we would urge them to please get in contact with our Communications Officer who will ensure you get the relevant documents.
‘We have been pleased with the amount of feedback we have received from our residents so far, however the more people that have their say the stronger our voice is here in Corby.’
Residents that haven’t received a consultation letter can get in touch with Kim Buzzard on 01536 464022 or email email@example.com for further information and help. There is also a petition style document available to sign and leave comment at the Corby Cube front desk. Responses will be used to inform Corby Borough Council’s final response to the Secretary of State.
Please note that Corby’s consultation is being held in addition to the county wide consultation that all Northamptonshire authorities are a part of. This county wide consultation is open until 22nd July.
People are being encouraged to have their say via the county wide consultation by going online to complete a questionnaire at www.futurenorthants.co.uk or you can pick up a copy of the consultation document at:
- Corby Library and Danesholme Library
- Corby Cube helpdesk
- Corby East Midlands International Pool
- Lodge Park Sports Centre
- Community Centres
We would urge residents of Corby to get involved in both consultation exercises to ensure that the voice of Corby people is heard.
