Parish Council

Being located on the southern fringe of South Gloucestershire, Oldland Parish is situated in a prime location with good access to the countryside whilst also benefiting from good access to the bustling centres of Bristol or Bath. Public transport services are good with regular bus services running to either Kingswood or Keynsham and Bristol and Bath City Centres. With adequate links to coach or rail for national travel, people are well served for getting out and about. The Avon Ring Road also provides good access to the M4 and M5 motor ways. Due to the success of retail and leisure facilities in Longwell Green some traffic congestion can cause difficulties at busy shopping periods but the installation of traffic lights on the roundabouts have helped to keep traffic
flowing.

Oldland Parish is serviced well by a large local retail, leisure and small business industry catering for a diversity of needs. Along with substantial provision of small industrial units within and just outside the parish the business sector also offers valuable employment opportunities.

Parishioners have excellent access to leisure activities at Aspects Leisure complex and a wealth of social and sporting activities provided from community facilities spread across the parish. Community Centres located in Longwell Green and Cadbury Heath provide extensive access to social provision along with local churches.
