Council Minutes, Records and Reports
Council minutes, reports, accounts, building improvement plans and correspondence are made available as part of the democratic process.

If they are available, Your Library may keep historical or recent parish council minutes.
Staffordshire Record Office has copies dating from 1894.
Urban, Borough, District and Unitary Councils
Your Library may have copies of historical or current minutes if they are deposited there by the local authority.
