Gloucester City Council

Gloucester City is a district council in the County of Gloucestershire with one parish council, Quedgeley Town Council. The City shares its borders with Stroud District Council, Forest of Dean District Council and Tewkesbury Borough Council. Gloucester, the county City, has plenty on offer and is everything you’d expect from a vibrant, multi-cultural British City.

It has one of the richest heritage offerings in the country, from its time as a Roman colony, to one of the three most important medieval cities in England, then its development into an industrial centre. It is home to one of the finest medieval buildings in the country: the breath-taking cathedral which has formed the backdrop of many scenes in Doctor Who and Harry Potter films.

The famous Kingsholm stadium, home of Gloucester Rugby Club, is renowned for hosting world class rugby with the club one of the leading clubs in the country and part of the premiership.

The historic docks have seen a stunning regeneration in recent years, delivering a retail outlet centre, great leisure and catering offerings, and superb riverside accommodation.

The City has many cultural offerings, hosting the Tall Ships festival, the Three Choirs Festival, several museums and the Guildhall music and performance venue.

Today, Gloucester is undergoing something of a modern day renaissance, rediscovering and celebrating its rich history. The regeneration of the city centre continues at pace with Kings Square redevelopment due to be completed in early 2022, and the exciting Forum development https://www.forumdigital.co.uk/ in progress and set to be completed in 2023 to deliver create one of the UK's first truly integrated digital societies that will provide the space and the infrastructure to build a seamless link between city centre living and working alongside further investment in the docks and the historic Fleece Hotel.
