Chipping Campden is a small market town nestling in a fold in the hills in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is often referred to as "the Jewel of the Cotswolds". Our High Street is famous for its elegant terraced houses made from honey-coloured Cotswold limestone.

The architecture of the High Street dates from the 14th to the 17th Century and the entire centre of the Town is a Conservation Area. Administratively, we are situated in the Campden Vale Ward of Cotswold District Council in Gloucestershire. The Town Council is responsible for providing a number of facilities within the Town including the allotments on Aston Road and the cemetery at West End Terrace. It is also responsible for the maintenance of St. James' churchyard and as the Sole Managing Trustee of two of the town's trusts it is responsible for the Grade II* listed Town Hall, the War Memorial Green (designed by the famous architect F.L. Griggs), the Town Square car park and The Playing Field and Recreation Grounds at George Lane and Castle Gardens.

We are also a statutory consultee on planning applications that are made to Cotswold District Council and our team of Councillors and Volunteers are currently working on our draft Neighbourhood Development Plan.

Chipping Campden Town Council Declares Climate Change Emergency.

Chipping Campden Town Council Declares Climate Change Emergency.

Chipping Campden Town Council declared a Climate Change Emergency at the Town Council meeting on 8th December 2020.

There is now no longer any debate about the fact that climate change is taking place and the world is getting warmer, and nor is there any longer any doubt that mankind is contributing to it.

Chipping Campden Town Council itself does not have the direct power or wherewithal to make a telling difference to climate change, but lots of small steps by lots of people will make a big difference. We will be reviewing our own carbon footprint on a continual basis, endeavouring to reduce our own energy consumption and emissions by utilising new technology and knowledge. We will actively consider the environmental impact of every decision the Town Council makes, support planning applications that embrace energy efficiency, and seek improvements in road infrastructure and public transport that improve our environment.

The Town Council welcomes all ideas from individuals or groups in the Town, so please participate and let us have your suggestions and news.

On behalf of the Town Council and all who live, work and visit Chipping Campden, I ask you to please be conscious of your own contribution to global warming and climate change, and make your own effort to lower your energy consumption and emissions whether at home or at work or away.

Thank you.

Michael Allchin

As announced last night, we are all going into a full lockdown similar to spring last year. This means we should all stay at home apart from a few limited exceptions.

A letter is being sent by government to those people who should be shielding completely.

An updated, good and easy-to-understand summary is available on the government website here.

If you do not already have help in place, please contact us. More »

We can:

  • collect prescriptions,
  • Collect pre-ordered shopping from the Coop (place your order with them by email to and let us know when it is paid for and ready for collection),
  • offer other help
  • including especially a listening service if you would just like a chat or have any queries.

If you are aware of anyone who might not know about the Support Hub, please contact them and give them our contact details below.
