How We Started

Stanley Development Trust (SDT) was formed in July 2008, and evolved out of the Stanley Improvement Association – a group of like-minded residents concerned about future developments in and around the village and their effect on the area. Following two successful public meetings, the community strongly endorsed the principle of the SIA becoming a Development Trust
