The Council has received a Petition for a Community Governance Review of Stonebroom and as a result, we need to consider whether Stonebroom should have its own Parish Council and not be a part of Shirland and Higham Parish Council any more.
The Petition is valid and a review must now be carried out.
To do this review effectively, the Council needs your views on whether you think there should be a separate Parish Council for Stonebroom or not and your reasons for such a view.
In accordance with the legislation which governs such reviews, the Council has to consider the following in making its decisions so your views on these are also requested:
- That any proposed arrangements reflect the identities and interests of the community.
- That any proposed arrangements are effective and convenient.
- The impact of community governance arrangements on community cohesion.
- The size populations and boundaries of a local community or parish.
All consultation responses will be considered by the Council as part of the review and will be made public.
Consultation responses must be received by 14th November 2022.
To understand more about the review you can read our frequently asked questions (.pdf | 100kb).
In addition, a public meeting will be held at Stonebroom Community Centre on Tuesday 1st November 2022 at 6pm. (Stonebroom Community Centre, Quarry Lane, Stonebroom, Alfreton, De55 6LJ).
At the meeting you will be given a detailed outline of the process and Council Officers will be available to answer any questions you may have. There will be parking available on the night between 5pm and 8pm at Stonebroom Primary School - High St, Stonebroom, Alfreton DE55 6JY.
