Budget Consultation 2024/25

We want to know what you think about how we spend your money. We have put together a list of suggested ideas for 2024 but now we need residents' views.

We want to find out what people's priorities and ideas are for the town – and have launched the consultation below to get those views.

There are a range of projects planned for the year which aim to boost the economy, improve the environment and local facilities, plus support groups and residents with grants and advice.

We are looking for feedback on ideas by Monday 4 December 2023, ahead of making a final decision at a council meeting on Wednesday 17 January 2024.

What is Kettering Town Council?

We are a parish council set up in 2021 after local government reorganisation. We have 20 elected councillors who decide what we do and what we spend. The Council elects a Mayor each year from amongst the councillors. The next elections are in 2025. Our decisions are made at public meetings which are open for everyone to come to.

What does Kettering Town Council do?

The council is responsible for a range of local services and activities - most council services are provided by North Northamptonshire Council - the unitary authority.

Kettering Town Council consists of 20 elected councillors who serve for a four year term. All councillors are elected members and receive no payment.

The council has regular public meetings to decide what to do and how to spend money to support Kettering. Go to the calendar to see all meetings.
