Minutes of the Bi-monthly Parish Council Meetings

Each meeting of the Parish Council is minuted by the Parish Clerk. The resulting written Minutes of that meeting are then discussed as an item on the agenda of the next meeting of the council two months later. Once the Minutes have been accepted as a true and accurate record of the previous meeting they are signed off and copies are placed on the Parish Council's notice boards and are deposited in Keyworth Library where they are available for public consultation. The collection of the Minutes of the Stanton Parish Council held in Keyworth Library are available back to January 1990. Minutes of the meetings of the Parish Council back to 1964 are still available for consultation at the Nottinghamshire Archives at County House, Castle Meadow Road, Nottingham
