Following consultation within the parish and formal resolution by the Parish Council, Hutton Henry Parish Council has liaised with Durham County Council regarding changing the Parish Council name to Hutton Henry and Station Town Parish Council to better reflect the area covered. On 7 December 2022 Durham County Council formally approved the request. The change of name will become effective from 1 February 2023.
Come and join us for bingo, pie & peas, tea & coffee and a good old-fashioned natter @Wingate Community Centre on Tuesday 1st November at 11:45am.
The Parish Council have been working to produce a Parish Plan which highlights the objectives of the Council for the next 4 years.
The plan considers the issues facing the community and our ability to respond with the resources available. It is a planning tool to assist us with the practical decisions we must take, supported by a review process that helps us, and you, look back on our performance.
This is our first parish plan, prepared at a time of austerity with an emphasis placed on value for money, efficiencies, and collaboration. Hutton Henry Parish Council, as the first tier of local government, is uniquely situated to provide the forum for understanding and supporting the needs of this community. It provides advocacy on behalf of its residents, uses linkages to other organisations to bring in services, or directly procures them itself. Day-to-day, the council will seek solutions for the community, looking for skills and volunteers to make improvements to our surroundings or bringing neighbourhood issues to local attention to promote a better quality of life for all. Above all your parish council is here to help, support and encourage.
