The Agenda and papers for next week’s meeting of Council are linked below.
We believe that we may be the first Town Council in County Durham and possibly beyond to broadcast our meeting live on Facebook so we will be offering a new way for the public to interact with our meetings from their own homes on Tuesday, fingers crossed there will be no technical problems!
The business on the agenda to be discussed will include decisions being made about projects, events and initiatives the Council is taking forward in 2017 and an update on progress towards a number of the Council’s medium term objectives, including a virtual tour of the old Front Street Council offices.
There is a full agenda for next week’s Town Council meeting. The Council will be approving the budget for 2017/18, considering the policy they will apply for the new grant budget of £55,000 which will be created. They will also be deciding whether or not to livestream Council meetings and reviewing terms and conditions for the Civic Hall.
Council will be considering whether or not to become the custodian of Annfield Plain War Memorial, what a brand new war memorial for the whole of Stanley could look like, whether or not to provide a community defibrillator for the town and looking at budgets for next year at Tuesday’s meeting. We will also be considering a request for funding for a charity swimathon being organised at Stanley baths by the Rotary Club of Derwentside, the new ALDI proposal and proposed changes to Dog Control Orders across the County.
The public are both welcomed and encouraged to come and participate in our meetings, this meeting will be held at the Stanley Education Centre (next to Shield Row School) at 6.30 pm on Tuesday 15th November. The hot chocolate from the free vending machine at Shield Row is recommended so we hope to see you there!

The next meeting of Council is the Crime & Community Safety Meeting. The Committee will be hearing presentations from Groundwork North East and Durham Money Advice about the services they provide which are funded by the Town Council and the Committee will be making recommendations as to items which should be included for funding in the next financial year.
