Local Government

Which Council Does What?

Local Government delivers a wide range of services but sometimes it is difficult to know what you can get from each level of local authority (And also what is provided by Central Government or utility companies).

Sometimes it seems that there is little sense behind who does what. For example, did you know that the West Northants Council is responsible for collecting our domestic rubbish and running recycling centres while the Parish Council runs the dog bins?

Local government in our area is provided by West Northamptonshire Council which carries out the responsibilities of both district and county councils.
