Doxey Parish Council

Doxey Parish Council (Website)

For number of years there was a campaign (supported by the Doxey Community Association) for Doxey to have its own parish council. Although Doxey was part of the Stafford town, this was possible if the area had a distinct identity and that there was a demand. In April 2004 the idea has been approved, by the Borough and County Councils and eventually by the government.

In 2005/6 The Parish Council was established.

One of its first actions was to commission a Parish Plan which would set out some of the options for Doxey. Mike Turner led the team that produced the first plan in 2007.(For details of the 2007-2012 plans click here.)

History of Local Government Boundaries

History

In 1917 Doxey became part of the Borough of Stafford having previously been part of Seighford parish. The area to the west of Greensome Lane remained in Seighford.  The two sides of Greensome Lane were in different authorities (the boundary stone can still be seen near the bus shelter)

 In the 1973 Local Goverment reorganisation the new Stafford Borough was formed from the old

with Doxeyfields in Seighford and Doxey in the Stafford Tillington Ward.

In 2003 the M6 became the effective town boundary so now all of Doxey is in the same ward.
