Daventry District Council

Proposals to transfer some Daventry District Council (DDC) services and land to the town council (DTC - Daventry Town Council) will be considered this evening.

Strategy Group Members will meet tonight to discuss whether a number of DDC’s assets – such as local play areas and the town’s markets and cemetery – should be taken on by the Town Council.

It follows a request by DTC in the light of Government plans to replace Daventry District Council and Northamptonshire’s seven other local authorities with two new unitary councils in 2021.
