Welcome to the Stannington Parish Council website for the parish of Stannington in Northumberland.

The Council has been in place since 1894 and represents the parish of Stannington and its residents in all matters relating to local democracy. The Council meets every two months and provides an important bridge between the community and Northumberland County Council. Councillors are active on a range of committees including:
Shotton Opencast Mining Liaison Committee
Delhi & Brenkley Opencast Mining Liaison Committee
Well Hill Opencast Liaison Committee and Funding Committee


The Council is a consultee on planning applications and where appropriate makes representations to Northumberland Councty Council.
The Council has published a Neighbourhood Plan for the parish with the support of a steering group. This plan, is complete and approved following referendum and will help shape the future of the parish. Click here to view the plan.
Please get in touch if you would like to know more or why not come along to one of our meetings which have a 20 minute session at the beginning of each meeting for members of the public to ask questions or appraise the council on local matters of interest.

Our vision & Mission

Our Vision for Stannington is for it to be a vibrant parish where the rural economy flourishes providing local jobs and a rich education for our younger residents. The parish will be a place where residents can enjoy a peaceful setting and yet benefit from a range of community facilities including our local school, village hall, pub, farm shops and rural shopping and commerce at the nearby Station Road and Milkhope Centre.
