COVID-19 UPDATE - July 2021

The Parish Office is open to members of the public from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm every weekday. The Stanton Hall and Conference Room are open for bookings. Please contact for further information about room bookings or see our Halls for Hire page.

The legislation that permitted virtual meetings ended on 7th May 2021 so we are now required to hold all in-person meetings for Full Council and all Standing Committees. Members of the public are permitted to attend these meetings but are asked to follow the guidelines set out below: subject to the following points.

  • Members of the public who wish to attend the meeting will be asked to form a socially-distanced queue at the main entrance to the Stanton Hall (by the Library) until they are given access to the building by a Councillor or member of staff immediately prior to the start of the meeting.
  • Members of the public must proceed as directed to their seat at the meeting and remain in it until the end of the meeting.
  • MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC MUST CONTACT if they develop COVID-19 within 14 days of the date of the meeting.
  • MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO FEEL UNWELL MUST NOT ENTER THE BUILDING. You must return home and follow government guidance.
  • If members of the public do not feel comfortable attending a face-to-face meeting they may submit any questions or comments in advance by 12.00 noon on the day of the meeting to the key member of staff for that meeting (as identified on the agenda).

We have set up a designated page on our website - COVID-19 (Corona Virus) support - where we will posting information for residents. Cheltenham Borough Council has set up a web-page which provides advice and updates on the corona virus. There are also links to other sources of advice from the government and the NHS.

Tree Charter Day

Tree Charter Day

On Saturday 27th November at 2.00pm, please meet by the car parking area on Newcourt Road for a tree walk around Newcourt Green. We will launch our new self-guided tree trail leaflet that shows the wonderful variety of trees to be found there and how to identify them. The leaflet has been produced in partnership with Cheltenham Borough Council's Senior Trees Officer (who will lead the walk) and with the invaluable technical expertise of a Master's degree student at Gloucestershire University. For more information on events throughout the year linked to the Parish Council's Tree Strategy, please see the Charlton Kings Parish Council Website.
