Installation of new raised tables

We wish to advise Stanbridge & Tilsworth Parishes  of the above  highway improvements that are scheduled to be carried out in the week commencing 16th February 2015.  This will involve the installation of two raised tables and associated warning signs along with various road markings on Tilsworth Road, Stanbridge.

Whilst some disruption will be caused to road users and the local community during the works , please be assured any disruption will be kept to an absolute minimum. Below is a detailed letter containing more information



Solar farm Discussion

There has been some call for a discussion purely for the Solar farm. This has been done and is avaliable underneath the discussions tab. 
Or a link is avaliable here:

A rumour has spread saying that the solar farm has been granted planning permission by CBC.  THIS IS UNTRUE.  The solar farm consultants have continued to work with CBC on a possible new application, as they are entitled to do.  Stanbridge Parish Council's view has not changed since the last letter that was written to CBC.  Any future application (should one be made), will be considered by the Parish council in conjuction with the residents.  Until then, the Parish Council will continue to monitor the situation.

The website follows its original statment: "The application for a solar farm has now been withdrawn and our webpage has been archived, please contact the councillors for further information if needed."


New Clerk
Lesley, our clerk and finance officer, has had to resign due to time constraints meaning an opening is avaliable.
