Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

In the consultation document for the Future Northants proposals (http://www.ors.org.uk/_docs/Future_North..., linked from https://www.futurenorthants.co.uk/), it is stated that "compared with the current position, it has been estimated that re-organisation into two new unitary councils would achieve annual savings of £12million per year through rationalisation, economies of scale and greater efficiency." It is also stated that "there will be a one-off cost
of approximately £22million to make the transition."

I'd be grateful if you could provide all the information you have about how these two figures were arrived at, including, but not limited to:

* breakdowns of costs/savings in as much detail as you have
* instructions provided to those that performed the estimates
* information about the uncertainties in each figure
* which organisation(s) were involved in arriving at each figure
* correspondence involving officers, members and consultants about the two figures

As this request relates to an ongoing consultation which closes on the 22nd of July, I'd be grateful if in line with the Freedom of Information Act you could reply promptly, and substantially sooner than the 20 days maximum limit, so that your reply can help inform consultees. If some parts of this request can be fulfilled sooner than others, I request that you provide partial answers as they become available.

Yours faithfully,

Alexander Dutton
