Strategic Alliance with Boston Borough Council
In June 2020 our Councillors agreed to enter in a Strategic Alliance with Boston Borough Council; with the Alliance coming into effect from July 1, 2020.
This Alliance sees us share three statutory posts: Head of Paid Service/ Chief Executive, Monitoring Officer and Section 151 Officer.
Over recent months we have adopted a shared Corporate Management Team across the organisations and we will eventually share a joint workforce.
Both Councils continue to retain their own identity and to be accountable to their local communities, however, sharing expertise, teams and resources will allow us to make significant savings. By coming together as we have, we will jointly save £15.4m over the next 10 years and be able to improve the delivery of services to local people.
The move will also provide both of us with a stronger voice when it comes to securing future Government growth funding and influencing how services are delivered locally in the future.
