Council Responsibilities

The Council's main areas of responsibility are for the parish's Open Spaces and the Brizen Young People's Centre.

Brizen Young People’s Centre

The Parish Council has leased Brizen Young People’s Centre from Cheltenham Borough Council since it’s completion in October 2009.  The Centre was built following fundraising and grants from Severn Trent Water and Cory Environmental which were obtained by Councillor Mrs Anne Regan, who was Deputy Mayor at the time the Centre was completed.

The Centre is managed on behalf of the Parish Council by the Trustees of the Brizen Young People’s Centre and is very much a popular local community hub with a wide variety of activities being held there on a regular basis, in addition to the Youth Clubs that are run by the Trustees.

If you are interested in hiring the Centre, which is a modern facility with a kitchen and table and chairs available to use, or would like to see what activities are held there, please visit www.thebrizenyoungpeoplescentre.org.uk

Open Spaces

The Parish Council owns a play area in Salisbury Avenue, Warden Hill.  This is an area that is in two distinct parts; a toddlers play area which the Council improved three years ago and an area that contains an all weather play surface and goal end.  The Council is currently planning to refurbish this part with a new play surface and double ended MUGA. 

Also in Warden Hill is an open space known as Weavers Field which, after much campaigning, was recently awarded Queen Elizabeth II status.  Not too far away there is also Brizen Recreational Field which has a MUGA and skateboard facility as well as a field which is regularly used for playing junior football matches.  These facilities are owned by Cheltenham Borough Council.

Also in the parish is a small toddlers play area near The Lanes, Leckhampton, and Leckhampton residents also have the benefit of playing fields boarding the parish boundary which are very well used for walking and the playing of team sports such as football.
