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 Market Square Car Park to stop taking cash payments from 12 December 2022

Dear stakeholder,

Cotswold District Council have decided to remove the option of paying by cash in all Cotswold District car parks this year to protect our environment and reduce crime. The change will come in from 12th December 2022 in Market Square Car Park, Chipping Campden.

Car park users will be able to use our payment system, PaybyPhone, which is used across the country and allows people to pay by making a quick phone call or by using the app. The pay and display machines remain in place and will continue to take card payments meaning users will still have many payment options. More »

This change will reduce our carbon footprint by stopping the c.20,000 miles driven every year to collect cash. It will also stop theft and vandalism we have experienced in our cash payment machines that have cost over £100k in the last 6 years.

We would appreciate your support in helping us make this transition by helping people understand what payment options they have before using the car parks after 12th December 2022.

As a council we will be putting up clear signage ahead of the change and will be updating the payment signs so it is clear for users. Our website will contain all the information on each car park.

We would like to ask for your help with the following:

  • Please share this information with your local communities so they are aware of the change
  • Please update any information you may have on your website, or in other locations, with regards to parking to include a note on payment methods
  • If anyone from your organisation uses the car park in question please encourage them to download the PaybyPhone app or bring their card to the car park

Thank you in advance for your support
