Formed by Parish Councils --- Run for Parish Councils --- Delivering to Parish Councils

The Gloucestershire Association of Parish and Town Councils (GAPTC) is a not for profit membership organisation, representing, training and advising the parish and town councils of Gloucestershire, who form the grass roots tier (or first level) of local government in England.

GAPTC offer members a resource of vital, operational information and facilitate communication at all levels of the parish network - district, county, regional and national.

As a membership association we are unable to deal with queries from the public, but we are happy to make general information available through this website, which helps to increase understanding and awareness about the sector.

LEP - Local Industrial Strategy (call for evidence)

Gloucestershire's Local Industrial Strategy will set the direction for the future of Gloucestershire's economy. It will help to inform local choices, prioritise local action and, where appropriate, help to inform decisions at a national level.

It will guide local investment alongside funding which is granted to Local Enterprise Partnerships by central government and other national schemes.

To prepare our Local Industrial Strategy, they first need to develop a robust and up-to-date evidence base to identify the strengths and challenges within the local economy. More »

The information contained within the evidence base will be used to formulate a series of future strategic priorities for inclusion within the Local Industrial Strategy.

The purpose of this Call for Evidence is to enable stakeholders to submit information they think should be included within the evidence base and should be taken into consideration during the preparation of the Local Industrial Strategy's emerging priorities.
