Visit to Brussels

Cllr David Mackintosh today travelled to Brussels with the Leader of Northamptonshire County Council, Cllr Jim Harker, to lobby for EU funding for Northamptonshire.

The two councillors will meet with Members of the European Parliament as well as officials from the UK Permanent Representation to the EU, the European Commission and other organisations aimed at securing more long-term funding for Northamptonshire.

Cllr Mackintosh said, “We are hopeful this visit will be a new beginning in our relationship with Brussels and start opening the door to some real investment into the county.”
