Residents in Rothwell are to be asked this year whether their town council should continue to exist or whether they should face a small increase on their council tax bill for its services.

A special meeting was held on Saturday, March 2, where 70 residents were given an opportunity to quiz town councillors about a precept – an increase on their bill – which is being added this year to pay for the town council.

Cllr Alan Mills said Kettering Council had previously given the town council a grant which was being cut.

Residents will be asked this year if the town council should be disbanded.
