A petition has been received from Stamford Bridge Parish Council, requesting that a community governance review be undertaken to review the boundaries of the parish and to increase the number of seats on the parish council.
The petition relates to a change to the parish boundaries in order to reflect and take account of new property development in the neighbouring parish of Skirpenbeck on the northern boundary of the Stamford Bridge parish. There is also a proposal for a change to the southern boundary neighbouring Catton Parish Council. The proposal also requests that should the proposal be approved, that the size of Stamford Bridge Parish Council be increased from nine members to ten.

The first phase of public consultation was carried out during September 2020 and following analysis and consideration of the feedback received, together with evidence and information from officers within the Council, draft recommendations have been approved by the Cabinet for a second phase of public consultation The draft recommendations are outlined below along with the reasons for the draft recommendations being made:
That due to their being no significant or overriding reason supporting the proposal to amend the southern parish boundary between Catton and Stamford Bridge, the proposal not be approved.
The proposal to amend the northern parish boundary between Stamford Bridge and Skirpenbeck be approved in part, with an amendment that the new boundary will run along the River Derwent up to a point opposite the eastern edge boundary of the new housing development and will then run from this point south until it meets the A166 and then run east until it meets the existing boundary with Skirpenbeck. This will ensure the boundary continues along existing ground features and does not cross a main ‘A’ road. A map outlining the proposed new boundary is included below. The reasons for this draft recommendation are:
The number of seats on Stamford Bridge Parish Council be increased by 1 to a total of 10.
