The Parish Council is located in the administrative area of the Forest of Dean District Council within the County of Gloucestershire and the parish area includes Blaisdon, Flaxley and Nottwood Hill. The Parish Council, whilst being one of the smallest within the County, plays an active role locally as a voice for the community and a link with other bodies in addition to its role as a statutory consultee on matters such as planning.
Through this web site Blaisdon Parish Council publishes the details of councillors, council meetings, agendas and minutes, financial and accounting information as required under The Transparency Code. In addition we aim to provide information relating to community activities within the area on the ‘community page’ and a page with useful ‘links’ to other local authority bodies and organisations affecting community life.
