Stamford Millstream Improvement Works - Community Survey

The Lincolnshire Rivers Trust is leading a project to improve habitat for wildlife and amenity value of the millstream in Stamford Town Meadows, downstream of the Lammas Bridge. In summary, the planned works include: 1) regrading of approximately 55 m of damaged banks along the millstream to create a smoother gradient to the water and reduce erosion, 2) introducing gravels to the stream and creating a small gravel beach to achieve a more heterogeneous streambed substrate, benefiting aquatic wildlife, and increase amenity value, 3) to replace the small weir with a rock ramp to allow fish movement within the watercourse, and 4) to install planted coir rolls along the concrete bank to improve habitat for wildlife and soften the views . The works are due to take place this Autumn.

We would like to gather the views of the community of Stamford on these works and have created a short online survey for to achieve this. We would greatly appreciate it if you could spare two minutes to answer the survey, which can be found here:

 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.

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.
