Statement from SNC Leader, Cllr Ian McCord on the publication of the Prospectus for ChangeStatement from SNC Leader, Cllr Ian McCord on the publication of the Prospectus for Change

The waiting is over, now the Government has given the go ahead for a new West Northants Council and a new North Northants Council, replacing the current County Council and seven District or Borough Councils. Subject to Parliamentary approval, it’s now full-speed ahead to the go-live date in April 2021.

"I’m pleased that the Government has listened to local voices, and included in its announcement the decision to hold elections in May 2020 for members of first the Shadow Authority (from May 2020 til March 2021), then taking over running each new Council when they go live in April 2021.

"In the meantime, I’ll be pressing ahead with my fellow councillors already elected to the current eight authorities to make all the preparations necessary ahead of those elections next year, as well as continuing to run the services we currently provide as business as usual.

"Here in South Northants, that will mean not taking our eye off the ball in delivering one of the best and most popular waste collection and recycling services in the whole country.

"The publication of this ‘Prospectus for Change’ sets out in more detail how we are approaching managing this change, and I am pleased that people can see from it that we really mean business."

Cllr Ian McCord, Leader of South Northamptonshire Council

Let us hope you have the in house capability to carry out the immense reorganisation. I would beware of taking on a myriad of consultants to carry out the task. Most are employed by companies with a core interest in taking over matters from the elected council.

The fact that external contracts are being reviewed does give some hope, although any in house expertise has no doubt dissipated over the years. A sad result of massive outsourcing.

No doubt, in twenty years there will be a move to break up these massive conglomerates into smaller units....................................
