Alkington Parish is a rural area halfway between Gloucester and Bristol. It lies to the west of the Cotswold escarpment and runs from the rolling hills and mixed farms below the escarpment to the flat water meadows of the Vale of Berkeley.

The population of 650 is split between Newport (where approximately half of the population lives), the largest settlement, and the rest of the parish.

Alkington Parish Council consists of 7 councillors, who give their time to continue to make the parish a pleasant place to live. The parish council is not responsible for planning decisions, rubbish collection, recycling, potholes or the roads, but is in regular contact with both Stroud District Council and Gloucester County Council, in particular Highways, to try to influence their delivery of services in the parish.
