Welcome to Hyde Lea
Hyde Lea Parish is located west of Stafford Borough and has the M 6 motorway as its boundary with the borough. It is bounded on the north by Seighford Parish, the west by Haughton Parish and the south by Dunston & Coppenhall Parish.
Hyde Lea was formerly Castlechurch Parish, and came into existence in April 2003 following the electoral boundary change that removed a large percentage of the parish into the Borough of Stafford.
Apart from the village of Hyde Lea, the parish is mainly rural and consists of approximately 140 dwellings.
The parish has 5 councillors and holds 6 meetings per annum, usually in the village hall.
The council deals mainly with local planning issues, the maintenance of public footpaths and bridleways in the parish area, the distribution of grant aid to local charities and other problems relating to highways.
