Welcome to Hunts Grove!
Hunts Grove Parish Council
UPDATE March 2020 – Due to the COVID-19 situation, local elections have been postponed until spring 2021. We are awaiting guidance from Stroud District Council and The Cabinet Office to fully understand the implications.
Well, the votes are in from the full council meeting at Stroud District and the result is unanimous support for creating a new parish council for Hunts Grove. This means that you will be able to vote for your own Councillors in the May 2020 election and, if you want to get more involved, stand for election yourself or join a committee for topics that interest you in the community.
The recommendations, maps, minutes etc are available on the Stroud District Council website. Click here for all of the document links.
Thanks to all that took part in the consultation. It is an important step both for local democracy and building a strong voice to ensure Hunts Grove thrives in the future.

Stakeholders we are working with
Stroud District Council is the local planning authority for Hunts Grove, as well as providing householder services. HGRA is working on behalf of its resident members regarding planning applications, liaising with neighbourhood wardens, planning enforcement and parking officers. Members of the HGRA founding committee met with the planner responsible and overseeing Hunts Grove from the beginning, John Longmuir at council offices in Stroud in July 2017 and on several occasions since. HGRA is also routinely working with our District Councillors, especially Cllr. Dave Mossman and Cllr. Gill Oxley.
Crest Nicholson are the master developer at Hunts Grove and are the primary stakeholder in the development planning for the site, the rate of building, provision of public open spaces and community facilities amongst many more areas. HGRA is engaged with Crest on a daily and weekly basis on a wide range of issues that have been raised by our resident members (originally our Facebook Group residents), for example site operations, footpaths, broadband, safety fencing, traffic, primary school, public open spaces and management company proposals.
Gloucestershire County Council are responsible for highways & transportation, education, and social services. HGRA is working together with our local County Councillors on a number of matters, from broadband provision to highway safety on Marconi Drive. Cllr. Stephen Davies has been very supportive in all our efforts. HGRA is also involved on matters relating to the new Hunts Grove Primary Academy with the education department and other stakeholders. Transport improvement schemes related to Hunts Grove include a new A38 access junction and Crosskeys Roundabout expansion.
The constitution of HGRA guarantees that all serving officers remain unpaid volunteers that either live or work within the confines of Hunts Grove. Membership of HGRA is limited to residents at Hunts Grove, stakeholders that are providing services or developing at Hunts Grove, and finally business sponsors within the parishes of Hardwicke, Haresfield or Quedgeley.
