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.

Cotswold District to receive £1,000,000 from UK Shared Prosperity Fund

Cotswold District Council has been allocated a total of £1m funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) as part of the government's Levelling Up agenda. The funding will be used to build pride in communities, support local businesses and improve employment and training opportunities.

Cllr Tony Dale, Cabinet Member for the Economy and Transformation, said "We've been through a thorough process to work out how best to use this funding to support local communities, businesses and people. More »

"Year one projects have been confirmed by an evaluation panel, made up of the Council and local partners, who have carried out assessments of all projects submitted.

"This funding is really going to help us deliver some exciting projects in the Cotswold District and I am looking forward to seeing the benefits that these will bring."

The UKSPF funding is spread over three financial years, running until 31st March 2025, with the majority of the funding coming in the final year. The funding has three investment priority themes, which are:

  • Communities and Place
  • Supporting Local Business
  • People and Skills (for 2024/25 only)

The projects chosen for year one are already well-developed and can be delivered rapidly as the funding needs to be spent by 31st March this year.

Year one projects receiving funding from the UKSPF include:

  • A feasibility study in bringing the Old Station building in Cirencester back into use.
  • Clean and Green projects (including sustainability initiatives and public realm improvements) across the District
  • Initiatives to combat littering and fly tipping across the District
  • A feasibility study into a cycle path from Bourton-on-the-Water to Kingham, together with other measures to promote active travel
  • A promotional campaign to encourage people to visit town centres and support local businesses

Applications will be sought for projects to fund in years two and three, which will be based on the 'interventions' set out in the Council's submission to the government, which has now been approved.

The key areas of focus for investment in years two and three will be:

  • Improving green spaces
  • Supporting town centres
  • Energy efficiency
  • Active travel
  • Business Support
  • Bringing forward employment sites
  • Supporting people into work
  • Green skills

If the annual funding allocation is not spent, it has to be repaid to the government so the deliverability of projects has been a key consideration to manage the risk of underspend.

The fund can be used to give grants to public or private organisations, commission third-party organisations, procure services or provide loans.

You can find out more about the funding and the projects it will support at www.cotswolds.gov.uk/SPF
