Stamford Town Council was formerly a Borough Council prior to the Local Government re-organisation in 1974. Although a Town Council, it's responsibilities and powers are the same as any Parish Council, with certain civic duties that it is required to undertake within its Parish boundary. Town Council responsibilities include the management of the Cemetery, the Allotments, the Recreation Ground and the Town Meadows. In addition, Councillors are appointed as trustees of the Harry Skells Estate Trust and administer the funds available from the Trust.
