Aug 1 - Corby Borough Council have released the results of a consultation they held into proposals on the future of local government.

CBC mailed households and set up a petition in the Cube, following public meetings about recommendations to merge CBC with other councils.

More than 4,400 households voted against plans for unitary authorities to replace the current borough and county set-up. More than 200 were in favour.

The council's leadership say the results were very clear and would help put together a response to the Secretary of State on the proposed reforms.

They have been made following the severe financial difficulties at Northamptonshire County Council. Results on a countywide consultation that around five thousand people took part in are still to come.
