Sapcote Boundary Change

Review of Sapcote Boundary

At the request of Sapcote Parish Council, the location of the parish boundary between Sapcote and Stoney Stanton has been changed. The previous parish boundary between the villages ran through the middle of the Jelson development and this resulted in part of Stoney Stanton's built environment being attached to Sapcote. As the whole of the Jelson site fell within the catchment area of All Saints primary school, and all of the traffic from the site was visited on Sapcote, the Parish Council considered that the boundary should be redrawn to reflect this. It was also considered to be inequitable that half of the council tax from the Jelson site was not available to the people of Sapcote. More »

This change will come into force on 1 April 2019, so from that date, the whole of the site will be in Sapcote. The Parish Council will now try to get the postal address of this area changed from Stoney Stanton to Sapcote, in line with the rest of the village, as this was causing substantial problems with the emergency services. » Less
