Here are some questions that the Parish Council have been asked. If you think it would be a good idea to have additional FAQ’s and their answers please let me us know using the Contact Us page on this website.

How can I become a Parish Councillor?

The Parish Council is very keen to work with residents as project leaders or champions for various projects. If you wish to become involved in this or wish to become a Parish Councillor please contact any Councillor to discuss.

How can I book to hold an activity or event on the Village Playing Field

The Playing Field (alongside the Village Hall) can be booked through the Parish Clerk – clerk@chedworthpc.org.uk or 01285 720313.

What does the Parish Council do?

The Parish Council plays an important role as the grass roots level of Local Government, directly representing and promoting the interests of the community. Councillors also act as ambassadors for their community, keeping everyone aware of local needs and concerns and reporting back on District, County and regional changes.

In addition to the Parish Councillors, who are your unpaid representatives, the Council employs a Clerk to carry out its business and to ensure that the many statutory requirements are met. A small levy, or precept, is added to your Council Tax to fund these activities.

Here are some of the services the Parish Council offers:

  • To provide a forum for parishioners to air matters of concern
  • To comment on planning applications to Cotswold District Council
  • To watch over the extensive footpath network within the Parish
  • To provide and maintain public noticeboards and litter bins
  • To maintain and let the playing field
  • To maintain the graveyard at the Lower End Chapel

What/where is the eXbox?
