Barlaston is an ancient parish and large village of Stafford overlooking the Trent valley. The name is of Anglo Saxon origin and is derived from Beornwulfs town or estate. Barlaston is the gateway to the Downs Banks – owned by the National Trust and offering approximately 160 acres of bracken-covered moorland forming an idyllic backdrop to Barlaston village.
Barlaston Parish Council is made up of eleven elected members who serve the community for a period of four years. Meetings are held every month, with the exception of August, usually on the first Tuesday, in the Methodist Church. The Chairman of the Parish Council is Gareth Jones and Vice-Chairman is Paul Fisher.
The agenda is published one week before the date of the meeting and is posted on notice boards around the village. Residents are welcome to attend meetings and have a chance to speak at the Open Forum which is at the start of each meeting. The minutes of the meeting are available on this website.
The Parish Council also employs a Clerk who attends all council meetings, takes minutes and deals with the day to day administration.
Staffordshire County Council acknowledges that town and parish councils are the level of local government closest to the people. The Local Council Charter sets out the County Council’s aims to work in partnership with local communities.
Barlaston also has its own Community First Responder Scheme (CFR), which means that residents have a group of trained volunteers, under the control of the ambulance service to look after the people in their area. Find out more about the Community First Responder Group by visiting their Facebook page.
