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.

Reopening Date for Local Leisure Centres

Leisure centres across the district are set to reopen from Monday 12 April, after receiving the Government's go-ahead for Step 2 of the roadmap.

Everyone Active's leisure centres in Cirencester, Bourton-on-the-Water and Chipping Campden in partnership with Cotswold District Council, will reopen their doors following a three-month closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Government confirmed on Monday 5 April that leisure centres would be safe to reopen with strict operational measures in place. This is the latest stage of the four-step roadmap plan More »

Everyone Active has committed to keeping its customers safe and active, ensuring it will meet and exceed Government guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19 with the Everyone Active Pledge. Full detail on the operator's pledge and safety measures can be found here.

During lockdowns, Everyone Active has provided a comprehensive package of online workouts for people to use, along with live-streamed classes across its social media pages.

Jamie Nesbit, Everyone Active's contract manager, said: "We're very much looking forward to reopening our centres and welcoming back the local community. After being closed for three months, the latest step in the Government's Roadmap is a positive move forward for the leisure industry and gives people of all ages the opportunity to resume activity and exercise in their leisure centre.

"Ensuring our colleagues and customers remain safe continues to be our number one priority and we have carefully considered the strict measurements to ensure we adhere to the guidance. We will be contacting all customers directly over the coming days regarding the centres reopening. We look forward to welcoming everyone back and thank them for their patience."

Jacqueline Wright, Cotswold District Council's Community Wellbeing manager, said: "We're looking forward to welcoming residents back to leisure facilities safely – they will give everyone a real boost after months in lockdown.

"While it is important to stay safe, keeping fit and healthy is equally important and this is a major step towards that for our communities."
