All Change for Councils in Northamptonshire

Local government in Northamptonshire is changing.  The existing system, which has been in place since the 1970s, is like a three-tier cake.  The bottom layer is parish and town councils which typically cover one village or town.  The middle layer is borough and district councils, which are responsible for things like planning applications, collecting the bins, tourism, and dealing with benefits.  The top layer is the county council, which is responsible for things like social services, education, and highways.
