The Stalybridge Town Council Area is shown on the following map .
The proposal is to create a new local council covering Stalybridge and its surrounding areas which use the SK15 postcode. The plan is to call it Stalybridge Town Council.
The council would be made up of unpaid councillors, democratically elected by local residents and supported by a professional, paid clerk. The leader of the council would be called a “Chair” or could be called a “Mayor”.
Stalybridge Town Council would be in addition to, not a replacement for Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council. It can be formed under the Localism Act 2011.
Stalybridge Together is supported by Cheshire Association of Local Councils and the National Association of Local Councils. NALC offers a wealth of information about local councils, all of which can be accessed on their website www.nalc.gov.uk.
