We feel that Stanwix should have its own Village Council


Many areas around Carlisle have the benefit of Village Councils, but Stanwix does not. It could apply for lottery funding for projects. It would have a legal input to development planning proposals. It would build community spirit, civic pride and disaster resilience.

This is a community governance petition to the City and County Councils for a community governance review under the provisions of the under the provisions of section 80 of the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act of 2007 as amended by the Legislative Reform (Community Governance Reviews) Order of 2015. Whiteclosegate & Millcroft roads are currently anomalously classed as ‘rural’ but also lie within ‘Stanwix Urban’ Division. Our proposal is that Whiteclosegate be outside the new petitioned area but that Millcroft should lie within. We propose that residents’ wishes should be sought by referendum and in consultation with the ‘Stanwix Rural Parish Council’.


We, the undersigned, feel that Stanwix should have its own Village Council:
