Who to Contact and Who does what
The parliamentary, county and borough council bodies serving Collingtree are listed together with contact details for the current elected representatives.
There are proposed parliamentary boundary changes that affect Collingtree Parish. At the 2010 General Election, Collingtree, along with Wootton and Hardingstone and the rest of the Nene Valley electoral ward, was moved out of the Northampton South Constituency. Nene Valley became part of the new South Northamptonshire Constituency (which includes Towcester & Brackley)
A further boundary review has proposed that for the next General Election in 2015, the Nene Valley ward will move back into the more urban Northampton South. This change was expected to become law during 2013 but may now be abandoned.
Collingtree and the rest of the Nene Valley ward are part of the non-metropolitan district of Northampton which is a subdivision of the non-metropolitan county of Northamptonshire. Under this two-tier structure, local government functions are divided between the two councils.
