Future of Grindon Parish Council to be considered

12 April 2017

The future governance of Grindon Parish Council will be considered by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Cabinet next week.

Earlier this year all registered local government electors living within Grindon Parish (including Grindon, Thorpe Thewles, The Elms and Wynyard) were asked to give their views on whether the parish should become two separate parishes.
The consultation is part of a Community Governance Review which was prompted after Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council received a community governance petition requesting the change.
On 20 April the Council's Cabinet will study the feedback.  The findings will then go before a meeting of the full Council before consultation on the draft proposals is held later this year.
The final recommendation and reasons for the decision will be published in summer 2017.
