Stenson Fields Parish Council is responsible for overseeing, advising and taking decisions on many aspects of parish life. The Parish Council is the first tier of local government and members are elected every four years. The Parish Council has very little real power – our key role is to represent the interests of local residents and to lobby those authorities that do have the power and responsibility to get things done such as the District and County Councils. In this Parish, a meeting will typically discuss planning applications, the state of public footpaths, highway matters and reports from District and County Councils.
Stenson Fields is a modern housing estate, built from the early 1970s and building continues today and its name is in keeping with the historical name of the area. The Parish lies wholly within South Derbyshire but it has borders with Derby City Council, bordering Sunny Hill, Sinfin and Littleover. The Parish was created in 1983 from parts of Barrow upon Trent, Twyford and Stenson.
Most local residents commute to neighbouring areas to access employment or visit nearby supermarkets, leisure facilities, banks and other services.
