Welcome to Naunton Parish Council's website

The parish of Naunton is situated in the Cotswold Hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  It is located around 12 miles east of Cheltenham and five miles west of Stow-on-the-Wold, and is set on the floor of the Windrush Valley with the river running through it. The parish has a population of around 350 people. The present day village has many thriving societies and clubs, an historic Dovecote, and is a favourite with walkers as many long-distance footpaths ramble through the village.  Much of the village falls within the Naunton Conservation Area.

The active Parish Council has five members who are dedicated to maintaining the natural beauty of the Parish, having input on planning development, planning for emergencies and self-help, highway and traffic matters as well as the recreation field and playground area. 

The parish is represented on Cotswold District Council by Richard Keeling, and on Gloucestershire County Council by Mark Mackenzie-Charrington. 

Gloucestershire fire services are currently promoting the need for carbon monoxide and smoke detectors and providing tips on safe use of heaters and other items. An online fire risk assessment is available here. For more information see this webpage.
