West Dean Boundaries

Parish Council

West Dean Parish Council, Gloucestershire (not to be confused with the other 2 West Dean Parish Councils)  now has a website, See the links there to contact your Parish Councillor.

West Dean is one of the largest parish councils, in geographical terms, in Gloucestershire with a population size rivalling many small towns.  Indeed, Bream, with a population of nearly 3000, claims to be the one of the biggest villages in Gloucestershire.  Our area is very diverse embracing a large part of the remaining statutory forest, some small industries and mineral works.  It encompasses many villages and hamlets. Apart from Bream other major areas of population are, Yorkley, Whitecroft, Parkend, Ellwood and Sling, and Mile End.

The area is fairly settled though there are some problems common to all rural and semi-rural areas.  Affordable housing, public transport and local employment amongst them.  These are all outside the area of responsibility of the PC but we seek to advise and influence where we can.

The parish office is located at the West Dean Centre, Bream.

The Pillowell ward of the Forest of Dean district council is represented by two Councillors:
