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 County Council runs the refuse disposal and recycling centres but the District Council is responsible for collecting our rubbish?

Here’s where you can find links to local government on-line services and local authority web sites.

Our County and District Councils are being combined to form a new, unitary, local authority to be called West Northamptonshire. This will come into operation in April 2021. You can keep track of progress on the Future West Northamptonshire web site.
