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.

There is also a wealth of useful information to help you find out if you are at risk and how to prepare, such as our essential flood guide.

Recycling centres close one day each week

From 28th October Gloucestershire County Council's Household Recycling Centres will be closed one day midweek.

As the evenings get colder and darker, the HRCs across the county receive almost 30 per cent less waste and recycling. In order to reflect this and save taxpayers money, HRCs will be open from 10am until 4pm, six days a week.

On Wednesdays, Pyke Quarry (Horsley near Stroud) will be closed.

On Thursdays, Hempsted (Gloucester) will be closed. More »

The information on the closure days and new seasonal times are now online at www.recycleforgloucestershire.com » Less
