Welcome to Publica


Welcome to Publica

First and foremost Publica is a partnership of four councils delivering more locally by working together.

We are a not-for-profit company owned by Cotswold, Forest of Dean, and West Oxfordshire District Councils and Cheltenham Borough Council. The councils work together through Publica to share skills and resources which enables us to deliver more for local communities, residents and businesses. 

What we do

Delivering local services

At Publica we deliver over 50 services that are traditionally delivered by district councils along with specialist project support to deliver on the priorities of our councils. We deliver these services for Cotswold, Forest of Dean and West Oxfordshire District Councils.

These services include planning, economic growth, housing, benefits, environmental health, licensing, waste and recycling, commissioning, community development, business support and parking among many others.

How we work

A great place to work

Here at Publica our ethos drives our attitude to be a ‘great place to work’ for our people. We know that staff who feel supported and enjoy their working environment will deliver their best work and ultimately make sure we are delivering the best possible services for our communities and businesses.

We are constantly looking to improve how we operate as a business to make sure our staff have the best environment to work in and we are using the ‘Investor in People’ model to drive that improvement.
