WELCOME TO STANLEY
Stanley Town Council is the largest “local” council in the county of Durham. It is about the whole area in and around what might be termed ‘wider’ Stanley and not just the town or town-centre itself. With a population of more than 31,000, the Town Council is the largest so called local council in the county.
Your council is committed to improving your area, improving the quality of life and developing a sense of pride by working together to ensure that our actions reflect your priorities.

People are the priority, for Stanley Town Clerk Helen Richardson, who took up her new role in February of 2022.
“I have always been someone who is all about community and I’m absolutely focused on how we can make things better for people in and around Stanley. I have enjoyed meeting the amount of amazing people across a number of communities who carry out vital work to help others and I look forward to working successfully with them all.”
“I understand and appreciate the positive impact that local councils can have on the lives of the residents they serve, and not only have I worked across almost every department at Newcastle City Council, I have also served as a Parish Clerk for Blakelaw and North Feham Community Council, for the past nine years. This too has given me an appreciation of the vital role councils can play in helping improve the lives for people and youngsters; it has provided me with a deep understanding of how councils work and operate and, more than anything, it has brought me a huge amount of satisfaction and even joy.”
“I am really looking forward to working with Stanley Town Council Team Leader, Mayor and Councillors; to keep driving forward the improvements that the people of this area so deserve.”
