Leckhampton with Warden Hill is one of only five parishes within Cheltenham Borough Council's area; much of Cheltenham is not parished, and is located in the south of Cheltenham.

It is a pleasant place to live, being conveniently situated for a wide variety of local amenities in and around Cheltenham. The area is served by several good schools.

The area is surrounded by a number of green open spaces, with Leckhampton sitting at the foot of Leckhampton Hill and centred around the medival parish church of St Peter's. Warden Hill is served by two churches, St Christopher's and the United Reformed Church, and has a local shopping area for the benefit of residents.

One of the main priorities of the parish council is to protect the area from over development and consequently the Council has spent a considerable amount of time gathering evidence to present to the planning authorities about how the proposals for development in the area contained in the Joint Core Strategy would be harmful to the area and residents.

Just over a year ago the Parish Council started monitoring air pollution and installed diffusion tubes around the Parish and also used a portable particulates monitor to carry out a series of readings
in Church Road, close to Leckhampton School. We are now trialling a new particulates monitor from PurpleAir, and plan to install 3 or 4 more around the parish. See our Air Pollution page

There are a number of community groups in the area also and you can find them in the directory section

The Council also strongly supports the young people of the area and was instrumental in having The Brizen Young People's Centre built. The building is now leased to the Parish Council by Cheltenham Borough Council and run by a small and conscientious group of trustees, led by its Chairman Dr Jodie Underhill and Parish Cllr Anne Regan the Vice Chair.
