Welcome to Stainland and District Parish Council, the first new parish council to be created in Calderdale since 1974

The parish council was created following a campaign by Stainland and District Community Association,which began in 2013 with a petition from residents to Calderdale Council requesting the creation of a new local parish council.  Calderdale MBC then consulted all electors in the proposed area before giving the go-ahead and formally creating the parish council in April 2017. The work of the parish council effectively began following the inaugural meeting in May 2018. Nine temporary councillors appointed by Calderdale Council will serve until the elections in May 2019.


Stop Press: Library Closure

You may have already received a newsletter from the Parish Council or been otherwise informed that Calderdale Council have closed Stainland Library and asking you for your views and support for keeping the building as a community asset instead of its sale to private investors. To collect the views of parishioners, we have developed a simple survey which we’d like you to complete as, if we are to convince Calderdale Council that we have plans for the use of the building, we need evidence of local support.

Please complete this short survey by clicking on this link: https://forms.office.com/r/u1D4vB1rph

The deadline for responses to the survey is 19th May.  Please ensure you have completed and submitted your answers to the survey by then.

At the end of the survey, you will be asked if you would like to provide contact details so that we can keep you in touch with developments. You do not have to do so but, if you do, we will hold this information securely and only use it for that purpose. We will not disclose this information to persons not associated with the Parish Council without your permission and you can withdraw this consent at any time buy contacting the Parish Clerk.

Thank you!
