    You may have missed this in the local media but there has been a significant turnaround in the County Council’s financial position this year.

    This article in the local government finance publication Room 151 describes this incredible achievement: bit.ly/2DZuVYr

    The figures published this week show that Northamptonshire County Council is on track to deliver a balanced budget this year with a £28.8m improvement in its overall financial position over the past six months and a substantial advance from the £64.2million overspend that stood at one stage this year.

    The latest finance monitoring report to be discussed by cabinet next week shows that the current forecast year-end position is an overspend of £1.4m – signalling a huge improvement from the £30.1m overspend forecast last July when the second Section 114 Notice was issued and a further improvement on the £11m position reported last month.
