BROOMLEY & STOCKSFIELD PARISH COUNCIL
May 2013 Election
The Parish Council - looking forward to 2013-17
On 2 May 2013, Parish Councils in Northumberland held elections for the first time under the Northumberland Unitary Authority which came into existence six years ago and Mrs Anne Dale was re-elected as our County Councillor.
In Broomley & Stocksfield we did not have an election for the Parish Council as only 4 people put themselves forward as parish councillors. This is disappointing and means that at least in the short term 4 people will do the parish council work previously carried out by 12 councillors. As a result, the work carried out by the Parish Council will be severely curtailed.
Can you help?
The Parish Council urgently needs to co-opt up to 8 new Parish Councillors.
Stocksfield is a lovely place to live, and our quality of life is well worth safeguarding. As more responsibilities are transferred to Parish Councils from our cash-strapped County Council, and in the context of deregulated national planning policies, the need for a strong, active, well informed and representative Parish Council has never been greater.
Would you like to work with others to support the future development of Stocksfield and its surrounding settlements? Do you have skills and interests which would help the Parish Councilís work? If you are interested in being a Parish Councillor please contact the Parish Clerk for information. Alternatively, if you would like an informal discussion about the role of Parish Councillors, please telephone the Chairman, Maggi Hunt, on 842674.
Your Parish Council needs you!
