Mini eUpdate from Northants CALC
To Member Councils in Northamptonshire:
[Please read and circulate to all councillors]
Northampton has missed out on being awarded City Status as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Milton Keynes, Colchester, and Doncaster were the winners in England (seehttps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-61505857). The City Bid had been widely supported but it wasn’t to be. At least die-hard supporters of Northampton Town Football Club can rest easy!
Land and Property Registration ***BRAND NEW COURSE*** 7 June 2022 10:00-12:00
Are there annoying parcels of unregistered land in your parish? The sort that the parish council has traditionally maintained because it thinks it might “own” it, but no one really knows for sure? Simon Eskreet, Managing Director at Land & Property Registration (LPR) will take you through the processes involved. You’ll also hear from a clerk to hear their perspective on the process. https://www.northantscalc.com/land-and-property-registration.html
