About the Parish Council

Council activities fall into three main categories: representing the local community, delivering services to meet local needs, and improving quality of life and community well-being.

The Parish Council represents members of the community to make all kinds of decisions on issues that affect the local community. Probably the most common topics that the Parish Council gets involved with are reviewing and commenting on planning matters, crime prevention matters, managing community spaces (the Village Green, Village Hall and Cameley Playing Field) and influencing the delivery of better services and facilities by representing the community regarding services provided by district council and local government such as public transport, roads and waste.

The Parish Council provides and delivers a variety of services including: 

  • Employment of two Village Operatives
    The Village Operatives carry out a range of tasks to keep Temple Cloud looking its best. This includes maintenance of the open spaces including the pump track, playing field and play park, village hall maintenance, grass cutting, litter picking, playground checks, ensuring the public rights of way are clear and accessible and supporting the work of Temple Cloud in Bloom.
  • Monitoring public rights of way and highways.
  • Providing consultation responses for B&NES planning applications.
  • Managing and administering Temple Cloud Village Hall and Cameley Playing Fields including the pump track and playground.

A new Parish Council was formed in May 2023 following the Local Government Elections. The Council term is four years and the next elections will be in May 2027. If you would like to find out more please get in touch or why not come along to one of our meetings – residents are always welcome and encouraged to attend.
