Neighbourhood Plan

image1

The Plan seeks to ensure that Freshford and Limpley Stoke remain the unique and cherished villages that they are: vibrant, sustainable and forward-looking

communities which are attractive places to live, work and visit. We wish to ensure that future generations will benefit from improved facilities whilst protecting the distinctive rural nature of the villages and their surrounding green fields and woodlands.

Council Chairman Peter Wyatt stands down

We were privileged to be able to say goodbye to Peter Wyatt at the Parish Council Meeting on Tue 4 Jun. Peter has stood down from his role as member and Chairman of the Parish Council after committing so much of his time to the Parish over the last few years. Peter joined the Council in 2011 and spent a lot of time making the George V Playpark the great and beautiful place it is today. Peter was also instrumental is bringing coherence and vigour to the creation of the Freshford and Limpley Stoke  Neighbourhood Plan which went live in 2015. We shall miss Peter’s calm and considered presence a lot, but most of all his strong sense of duty coupled to a great sense of humour. It is a privilege to be named as his successor and I look forward to taking his excellent work forward with the Vice Chair Francis Firmstone and the team on the Parish Council - Ed Elias, Ruth Fulton, Alan MacDougall, Nicky Bolton and our latest soon-to-be member (who will be co-opted in July) Georgina (George) Taylor.

Mowing of road verges


As we head into the verge mowing season, we would like to remind you of the guidance on the Management of Roadside Verges contained with the Cotswold Conservation Board’s position statement.
With the continuing loss of wild flower rich grasslands and the pollinators and other insects and wildlife they support, road verges are becoming increasingly important for biodiversity. Unfortunately, each year over-zealous or poorly timed mowing leads to the loss of wildflowers including orchids.


The Position Statement is available to download from the Board’s website
