Council seats to be cut

THE number of seats on Northamptonshire County Council is to be cut by 22 per cent.

The Boundary Commission for England said the ideal number for the authority is 57, 16 fewer than now.

NCC said the move was initiated to reduce electoral inequality in the county, but added the move would save up to £350,000 over four years.

Next the new divisions for the councillors will be decided.
