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.

Residents Letter

Dear Resident

My name is Irena and I am the new Clerk for Alkington Parish Council. The Council offers its sincere thanks and best wishes to Anita for her retirement.

A huge challenge in Alkington is how best to let you know what the Council is up to and what is happening within the community. Therefore, I would like to set up an email database, where I can directly email you this information. If you would be interested in receiving this, then please email me (so I can add you to the list) at clerk@alkingtonparishcouncil.org.uk - please be reassured that I will not share your details with anyone else and the Councils Data and Privacy Policy can be viewed online at https://www.alkingtonparishcouncil.org.uk/policies-and-regulations.html More »

The Parish Council meetings are open to the public to attend and include a session at the beginning for questions. The next meeting will be Monday 11th July commencing at 7.15pm in Stone Cricket Club. There is currently a vacancy on the Council, please feel free to contact me for further information – the Council meet every other month, so not too onerous. https://www.alkingtonparishcouncil.org.uk/ » Less
