‘Cherwell District Council and South Northamptonshire councils to end Partnership’

Cherwell District Council have released to following information regarding its working partnership with South Northamptonshire councils……

Cherwell District Council and South Northamptonshire councils have announced that with great regret the partnership between the two councils dating back to 2010 will draw to a close.

The Local Government Review in Northamptonshire has required the Leader and the administration of Cherwell District Council to reflect upon its future and consider what is best for its residents. As a result they are minded to formally end their successful partnership with South Northamptonshire.

South Northamptonshire Council has said it fully understands and accepts Cherwell District Council’s decision, stating that the separation is totally amicable.

The exact details and process for this separation have yet to be worked out. Both councils have said that all decisions will be taken with the best interests of residents and council staff at their heart, and regret that external circumstances have forced this split.
