Welcome to The Stours Parish Council Website
Next Meeting: All meetings are cancelled until further notice.
The Stours is a grouped Parish Council, situated in North Dorset and includes the four parishes of East Stour, Stour Provost, Todber and West Stour. The river Stour is a major influence on the four parishes that make up the parish council and from which the council gets its name. The four parishes do, however, have their own unique characteristics - go to 'About the Stours' to find out more.
The initial audit documents for the year ending 2018/2019 can now be viewed via the links on the 'Transparency Information' page 11 June 2019
