The Parish of Cam lies in the Vale of Gloucester, south of Gloucester, north of Bristol and close to the market town of Dursley.
The first written record of Cam is in the Doomsday book 1086-90. The original spelling was "Camma", Celtic and pre-Christian in origin, possibly meaning river in the valley. It is thought to have been the oldest village in the district.
Its history is closely associated with the woollen industry, with several old mills still in existence. There has been considerable residential development from the middle of the twentieth century and Cam is now a thriving community with a population of approximately 8,500 people, represented by a Parish Council with 16 members.
Cam Parish Council assists to provide your local services. Our website includes much information about how we conduct business and what we do. Use the search or browse the site to find whatever you are looking for. If you can't find the information you require then please contact us.
The Woodland Trust has launched an initiative called the Tree Charter setting out 10 principles showing how trees are important to people, wildlife, the environment and the forestry sector.
The Charter for Trees, Woods and People will guide policy and practice in the UK. It sets out how people and trees benefit each other.
It's supported by more than 70 organisations - including Cam Parish Council.
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT! Sign the Tree Charter at the Cam Parish Council offices. For every signature received a tree will be planted! More »
