Stamford Bridge Community Governance Review

A petition has been received from Stamford Bridge Parish Council, requesting that a community governance review be undertaken to review the boundaries of the parish and to increase the number of seats on the parish council.

The petition relates to a change to the parish boundaries in order to reflect and take account of new property development in the neighbouring parish of Skirpenbeck on the northern boundary of the Stamford Bridge parish. There is also a proposal for a change to the southern boundary neighbouring Catton Parish Council. The proposal also requests that should the proposal be approved, that the size of Stamford Bridge Parish Council be increased from nine members to ten.
