Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council is carrying out the consultation after a decision to hold a Community Governance Review was taken at a full meeting of Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council in December.

All registered local government electors living within Grindon Parish (including Grindon, Thorpe Thewles, The Elms and Wynyard) are invited to give their views on whether the parish should become two separate parishes before the consultation ends on Tuesday 28 February.

Every registered local government elector should have received a letter about the Community Governance Review explaining how they can take part and give their views, possible options and when the outcome of the review will be known.

The findings will be considered at Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Cabinet and full Council meetings before consultation on the draft proposals is held later this year. The final recommendation and reasons for the decision will be published in summer 2017.
