Stanway Parish Council

Serving the people of Stanway

Parish Clerk: Mr David Lines
Victory Hall, Villa Road
Stanway, Colchester, Essex

Welcome to 2020 and our new website which contains (and will contain) a lot of information, not just about Stanway Parish Council, but (over time) much, much more. For example, the Community Section provides a calendar of events which local organisations can add to (noting that this will be subject to editorial review to ensure suitability before publication).

Stanway Parish Council is the third tier of local government in the area and is totally independent from the other two tiers, Essex County Council and Colchester Borough Council.

SPC provides some of your local services, but, to make this website a 'one stop shop', we have created an A -Z which (once fully developed) will provide you with information and links about almost everything in Stanway.

As your Parish Council, we strive to make Stanway a better place to live, work and play. Here, you will find a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search facility or browse through the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require, then please contact us.
