Naunton Playground project

The next meeting of Naunton Parish Council will be held at 6.30 p.m. on Monday 16th May at the village hall.  The Annual Parish meeting will take place first, followed by the Annual Parish Council Meeting at 7.00 p.m. Agendas are available here.

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. Click here to see the last report from departing Cllr Nigel Moor. 

Naunton Parish Council is excited to announce that works to upgrade and enlarge the playground are under way and should be finished before Christmas.  The Council was successful in winning a grant of £8,000 from Cotswold District Council and a further £2,000 from the Gloucestershire Playing Fields Association.  Residents have given generously and, together with a donation of £2,500 from the Cuuncil itself, the project is now fully  funded. 

NPC intends to hold an event to mark the opening of the playground in spring when weather will be more suitable.
