Community Governance Review

Community Governance Review

Stroud District Council has announced that Cam should be included in a small-scale Community Governance Review looking at specific areas of the district.

Cam Parish Council submitted a request to review the number of seats on the council (currently 16 seats) given the substantial amount of growth within the Parish. It does not intend to make any request to amend the Parish boundary.

There are currently two wards within Cam: Cam West (9 seats) and Cam East (7 seats). A working party, initially made up of Councillors will explore options and opinions around increasing the seats for these wards or whether a third ward could be created and where this might sit within the existing Parish boundary. Its preferred option will be discussed by Full Council before being submitted to Stroud District Council for consideration.
