Council Agenda – 15th December

The Town Council meets next Tuesday (15th) at 6.30 pm at the Civic Hall. We are in the later stages of setting the budget for the next financial year and Councillors will be deciding what the priorities are. Business to be discussed will include:

  • Who the first Blue Plaques should be put up for;
  • Whether or not the Council should put new signs and floral displays on the roads into the Parish and hanging baskets in the shopping streets;
  • Whether or not a new war memorial should be built for the whole of Stanley to commemorate the centenary of the end of the war in 1918, or something different.
  • What should be funded in the next year’s budget.

The Agenda and background documents are linked on our homepage: www.stanley-tc.gov.uk

    I have a question about the 1st 3 items above.

    Do they all not need planning permission from DCC to be implemented ….. ?

    Hanging baskets would look great but shouldnt we be looking at tackling the birned out buildings first of all as they are such an eyesore and the vacate plot in Stanley Front Street – mind that looks better since lots of the fencing has been blown down. Would be great if the council bought the vacant plot and turned it into a play area for the kids. Heck even a McDonalds on the site would be better and people actually like mcDonalds so would bring in shoppers and revenue. Stanley Front St needs a lot more than hanging baskets

    what is to happen with the land empty at top of front St?
    Then the old school?
    And more urgent the burnt out eyesore on the high street still with burn hole in roof?
    Nice attraction
    Flower pots are your last worry

      The old board school was sold by the County Council and planning permission has been granted to convert it into flats. The vacant land is for sale. I don’t have any information about the Bertie’s site. The Town Council has not made a decision about the hanging baskets. They will be discussed at Tuesday’s meeting.

        IF money is so tight – can anyone please explain –
        1. Why was money spent on building a low wall on WASTE ground adjacent to the back of St Josephs School – it serves NO purpose and if and when the land is sold – will probably be demolished?
        2. What is the purpose for 2 padlocked bollards – 6 inches from the exterior wall of Pound stretcher – there is no barrier on the opposite wall – so the bollards are already defunct?

          Hi Tanya, I’m afraid I have no idea who built the wall you’re referring to but I think it’s on private land. In relation to the bollards, the County Council have recently installed a number of bollards on the side roads around Front Street. The intention is to prevent vehicles driving onto Front Street and parking. I’m not familiar with the exact ones you refer to but if they are not effective then I will certainly raise this with the County Council

            the wall has been built on land that is for sale by the county council – if memory serves me right – a gas showroom used to be on the land prior to 2000 – maybe a while before that
