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 and recycling, Planning and Environmental Health, while Lincolnshire County Council includes Education, Police, Highways, Street lighting and Libraries among its responsibilities.



Stamford FIRST is the “Stamford Neighbourhood Planning Forum” – a community group working under the auspices of Stamford Town Council and formed to take responsibility for the creation of a Neighbourhood Plan for your community.

They will be running a consultation process to ensure every voice in Stamford is heard. Just follow this link to complete the questionnaire! You can also watch the promotional video for the project here
