Future of Elton Parish Council to be Considered

STOCKTON-ON-TEES Borough Council is carrying out a consultation about the future of Elton Parish Council.

All registered electors living within Elton Parish boundary will be invited to give their views on the Community Governance Review which could lead to the Parish Council being abolished.

A recommendation to carry out the review was approved at a full meeting of Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council on Wednesday(16 September). The decision to hold the Community Governance Review was based on a report which stated that the Parish Council had not operated since December 2008.

The consultation period will run until 31 October 2015 so every registered elector in Elton will shortly receive a letter about the Community Governance Review.  It will explain how they can take part and give their views, possible options and when the outcome of the review will be known.

The findings will be considered at Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet and full Council meetings before consultation on the draft proposals is held early next year.

The final recommendation and reasons for the decision will be published at the end of April 2016.

Further information about the review can be found at  and is available at Stockton Central Library and Customer Contact Centre.
