Stansted Parish Council usually meets on the first Monday of each month at 8 p.m., with the venue alternating between Stansted and Fairseat village halls. The Annual Parish Meeting will be held at Fairseat Village Hall on Monday 3rd April at 7.45 pm, when we hope that organisations in the villages will come to report on their activities, and we look forward to seeing residents. This will be immediately followed by the regular Parish Council meeting at 8 pm. The Agenda will be available on this site under Documents before the meeting. All are welcome to attend.
You will be aware of the upcoming Local Elections on Thursday 4th May. Please see the attached notices regarding these Parish Council and Borough Council elections.
Also attached is a Road Closure notice for Ash Lane, Stansted.
Stansted and Fairseat are no more than one mile from the M20/M26 and A20, yet the villages manage to convey a sense of remoteness and tranquillity. Stansted has a lovely setting of undulating hills of the North Downs, with broad views looking north towards Gravesend and the Thames Estuary. On a clear day Canada Tower at Canary Wharf is clearly visible. Brands Hatch motor racing circuit is only three miles north of Stansted, but a million miles away in terms of noise and commotion.
Stansted Parish Council has been in existence for over 100 years and it encompasses the villages of Stansted and Fairseat. These two villages are nestled on the top of the North Downs and the area has changed very little since the parish council was formed in 1892. The 2011 Census recorded 484 residents in our parish area of 799.13 Hectare.
There are approximately 400 registered electors within the parish which is situated within the Borough of Tonbridge & Malling.
Stansted and Fairseat have their own village halls with a Recreation Ground and children’s play park nearby. Many footpaths, bridleways and restricted byways meander through the Parish and over the Kentish North Downs.
