The Local Government Finance Settlement - more money for Corby & East Northamptonshire services:

Local authorities play a vital role in our communities, providing the crucial local services that people rely on every day, and I am delighted that the Government has confirmed that Corby & East Northamptonshire will have an additional £800,000 of funding this year between the two local authorities, which will help our local leaders make positive change in our area. Northamptonshire County Council will also receive an additional £32.9 million compared to last year - a very welcome boost. We were elected on a promise to level-up local communities across the whole country, and with this funding increase, we can start to do exactly that, investing more in local priorities and helping deliver better services. There is always more to do, and I will always press for more, but this is yet another promise kept!
