Museum Questionnaire

Can you help us create a new museum which will inspire and enrich?

It has been a decade now since the museum on Broad Street closed. The Town Council and local partners are developing a vision for what a museum for Stamford should be.

There is an amazing collection of objects in store and equally amazing stories behind every front door...

What can these be for Stamford today? Who can make them come to life?

We are seeking your views and involvement so that this new organisation is relevant, vibrant and helps the town thrive.

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, street cleaning, and tree preservation.

Lincolnshire County Council responsibilities include: Adult social Care, Children's Services, Education, Highways, Street Lighting, Libraries, Trading Standards, Fire & Rescue, Registration and Celebratory Services.
