A decision on the future governance options for the unparished area of Corby Borough was agreed at last night’s (Wednesday 16th January) Full Council meeting.
Councillor’s agreed that a Community Governance Review will be undertaken based on the currently unparished areas of the borough which could see a Corby Town Council introduced. A further report will be presented to Full Council in February 2019 to formally commence the Review and agree Terms and References.
Councillors also agreed to implement Charter Trust status, which will ensure that local civic traditions are protected until the completion of the Community Governance Review.
The Leader of Corby Borough Council, Cllr Tom Beattie, said:
‘It is clear that councillors want to ensure that Corby’s identity and local decision making is not lost in our Borough should unitary authorities be introduced in Northamptonshire. Following the outcome of last night’s Full Council meeting, we will now look at future governance options and take action to ensure that we mitigate these concerns as much as possible.’
