It is time for Stratford-on-Avon District Council to create a new plan to provide its directions for the next four years, and we need your help.
Since the local elections in May of this year, the Council has been working with key stakeholders (both internal and external) to produce a set of aspirations and outcomes that aims to have a positive impact for residents, communities and businesses in the District.
Deadline extended to 20 December 2019
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is researching the local elections in May this year to examine the elections process for local (parish and town) councils.
The research will gather data from local councils, councillors and county associations, and aims to find out more about candidates, costs, support, promotion, planning, resources and future reform.
The government has published their parkrun consultation response, which Iconcludes that legislation is not necessary at this point. In NALC's written response to last year’s consultation, NALC strongly opposed the introduction of any measures which will remove the ability of local (parish and town) councils to charge for park-based activities including Parkrun. However, the government remains of the view that local authorities should not charge Parkrun or other organisations that currently provide free-to-enter running events, and intends to publish non-statutory guidance which will make very clear that local authorities should never charge for local Parkrun events. NALC will be liaising further with officials and ministers on this issue.
