Welcome to the Stamford Town Council website
Stamford Town Council was formerly a Borough Council, prior to the local government reorganisation in 1974. Although called a Town Council, its responsibilities and powers are the same as any Parish Council, with certain civic duties that it is required to undertake within its parish boundary. Responsibilities include the management of the cemetery, the town’s allotments, the Recreation Ground and the town Meadows. In addition, the councillors are appointed as trustees of the Harry Skells Estate Trust and administer the funds available from the Trust.
South Kesteven District Council is responsible for activities such as waste collection, recycling, planning and environmental health, licences, litter bins, markets, parking permits, public toilets, recycling, street cleaning, and tree preservation.
Lincolnshire County Council
responsibilities include: education, police, highways, flooding, street lighting, libraries, registration and celebratory services

**WEATHER ALERT FOR 17TH-18TH MARCH**
You may be aware that we are forecast some wintery weather over the weekend. A yellow warning for Snow has been issued by the MET Office for Saturday 17th March. A band of snow will move slowly south through Saturday morning, followed by snow showers. Accumulations of 1-3cm are expected quite widely with 5-10cm possible. Strong easterly winds will lead to drifting where snow accumulates. Marked wind chill will be another feature of this weather system. This warning is valid from 0005 on Sat, 17th March until 23:55hrs Sat, 17th March 2018.
Moving into Sunday 18th March, an amber warning for snow and ice has been issued by the MET Office for our region. Snow accumulations will be varied across the area as showers are expected to organise into bands. Whilst some areas will receive relatively small amounts of snow, narrow bands of 5-10cm of snow are likely, with a chance of 15cm over higher ground. Strong easterly winds will result in drifting of lying snow, and lead to significant wind chill. Showers are expected to become more isolated through Sunday morning. This weather warning is valid from 1600hrs Sat, 17th March until 0900hrs Sun 18th March 2018.
