Conservation Area Statement

Cricklade Town Council has a Conservation Area Statement which, whilst produced in 1999, is still applicable today. Formulation of specific proposals for the conservation area requires a clear assessment and definition of the area’s special interest and what it is about the character and appearance of the area which should be preserved or enhanced. This will form the basis for making proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the Conservation Area, and the reinforcement of local identity.

You can view the document in full: here.

Cricklade Flood Plan

Cricklade has drawn up its own Flood Plan which can be viewed:  here.

We would welcome your comments on this and would like to hear from those of you who would like to join our small band of volunteer Flood Wardens. Orchestrating this and other contingency planning alongside the Town Council is Cricklade’s Community Emergency Volunteer (CEV) and we are also now looking for a Deputy CEV to help with this. If you are interested in being a Flood Warden or Deputy CEV, please contact the Town Council offices.

Dance Common Management 

Dance Common is a prominent area of open space on the southern entrance to the town. The Dance Common Management Group was established early in 2013 by members of the community who shared an interest in this historic site.

Cricklade Town Council only have a responsibility to prevent acts detrimental to common land. 

Long Close Management Plan

In 2011, the people of Cricklade became the owners of this wonderful piece of public open space close to the centre of the town.  The area is registered as a scheduled monument because the Saxon ramparts run through it and due to this, it has remained untouched for many years. The Town Council have started to enhance the area, working in partnership with English Heritage and Natural England to reveal the historical background of the site.

A 5 year Management Plan has been produced and can be read here:
