The Annual Parish Meeting is next Tuesday, 17th May 2016 at the Civic Hall in Stanley.
The Parish Meeting is your meeting. It is not a normal Council meeting. It gives every resident an opportunity to raise any matters that are of concern to them and affect the Parish, regardless of whether they are related to services that the Town Council provides.
It is also an opportunity for the Council to present what it has done in the previous 12 months and for residents to ask questions directly.
Refreshments will be provided. We hope to see you there.

We are the Local Council for Annfield Plain, Bloemfontein, Catchgate, Clough Dene, Craghead, Greencroft, Harelaw, Kip Hill, The Middles, New Kyo, No Place, Oxhill, Quaking Houses, Shield Row, South Moor, Stanley, Tanfield, Tanfield Lea, Tantobie, West Kyo and White-le-Head. With a population of more than 31,000, the Town Council represents one of the largest local council areas in County Durham.
The Council was set up in 2007 to give Stanley people a stronger voice and influence over matters affecting the area. In the current climate where we have a unitary County Council covering a huge area under significant financial pressure from ongoing budget reductions, the need for local representation is greater than ever.
The Council is committed to improving our area, improving the quality of life in all our communities and developing a sense of pride. The Council has the power to raise funds through Council Tax and invest in almost anything that will improve amenities for our residents.
