Our Services

We support our community in a number of important ways. These include maintaining common areas and facilities, arranging burials, representing local views on key issues and funding local groups that aid community cohesion.

Our point of view on planning

The parish council is an important consultee for the District Planning Authority, which is part of Cotswold District Council (CDC). This means that we are notified of all new planning applications in the parish and asked to provide any comments by a strict deadline. The final decision is then taken by CDC as the local planning authority.

You can view all current planning applications under consideration by CDC in detail here, including consultee comments.

We also include details of planning applications and the council’s comments in  our monthly meeting minutes. If you have any questions regarding planning, please contact CDC on planning@cotswold.gov.uk or telephone 01285 623000.

Helping you make burial arrangements

We understand that planning a burial at a time of bereavement can be especially challenging. As a council, we’re here to help make the process
run as smoothly as possible.

Please browse the forms below and download the ones you need. If you need help working out which forms you need, please contact Ms Sarah Longbottom, the Parish Clerk, on 01386 701602 or via email to parishclerk@blockley.org.uk.


Please note the Parish Clerk’s working hours are Mon-Weds 9am-2pm.

Community Support

We directly support and provide funding for several community groups, often in partnership with third-party service providers. We make funding decisions based on there being a clear and demonstrable benefit for the whole community.

Blockley Youth Club

Blockley Youth Club is run by Community and Mentoring and Support (CMAS), based in Cheltenham. 

CMAS is a social enterprise that exists to meet unmet needs for young people, their families and the professionals who work with them. The organisation provides youth clubs and other youth services on behalf of parish councils across the county.


The Juniors (8-13 yrs) and Seniors (13-18 yrs) groups meet every Thursday on a weekly basis at Blockley Sports and Social Club.

For more details please contact Gemma Hall via email to gemma.hall@communitymas.co.uk. Or visit Blockley Youth Club on Facebook.
