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 provides YOUR local services. We strive to make this a better place to live, work and visit. Our website includes a wealth of information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for.

A major production company will be coming to Chipping Campden on the 28th July for approximately 10 days to film a new action adventure series.
The Town Hall and between six and eight car parking spaces will be closed for the duration of this period to allow the erection of the film set. Twelve alternative parking spaces have been arranged in The Kings Hotel car park and parking stewards will be on site to direct traffic to them as well as to the school car parks. More »
The High Street will be subject to a road closure order from 3rd August to the 4th August (inclusive) to enable the filming to take place. During this time the Town Square car park will be closed completely but again, stewards will direct traffic to alternative parking sites within walking distance of the town centre and make provision to enable less-abled people to access the town centre, despite the road closure.
Filming would commence from approximately 12:30 to 21:00, however there could be activity around the square from 08:00 AM in order to set up. The action primarily takes place on the pavement outside the Kings Arms Hotel, the Market Square Car Park, and some inside the Old Police Station.
The Country Market will temporarily relocate to the Market Hall on Friday 30th July and Friday 6th August.
Please be aware that the Town will be busier than usual as the film company will consist of a crew of approximately 100 people, working and, hopefully, shopping and eating!
Chipping Campden School car park will be available for parking free of charge during this period.
As a gesture of thanks to the local community for their cooperation and understanding during filming, the company will make a donation to recommended charities, please feel free to get in touch to nominate a charitable organisation.
