Community Governance Review for Stapleford

We have under taken a community governance review of the parish of Stapleford to consider if there should be an increase in the number of parish councillors from 9 to 11 to support Stapleford Parish Council to undertake increased workload. We were approached by Stapleford Parish Council who requested this review.

The community governance review commences with the publication of the Terms of Reference on 12 September 2018.

Stapleford Community Governance Review - Terms of Reference 

An online consultation form was available from 12 September on our consultation portal and provided the opportunity to agree or disagree with the proposal of increasing the number of Stapleford Parish Councillors from 9 to 11.

Paper copies were made available from South Cambridgeshire District Council Offices in Cambourne, and from the Stapleford Parish Council clerk, The Chestnuts, Cox's Close Communal Building. All responses made online or paper copies were returned to our offices by midnight 12 November 2018.

The consultation has now closed. The Council's Civic Affairs Committee has deferred a decision on this review pending further information.  The Committee next meets on 5 March 2019. 

The review will follow the timetable outlined below and the process will be concluded by 28 Feb 2019.
