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

Publica is a not-for-profit Teckal 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. 

Publica is a young organisation but we have positively transformed the services for our residents and businesses through our unique partnership approach. The large majority of council staff are employed by Publica and we work to provide excellent services for the councils and deliver their priorities for their districts.

We are ambitious and innovative, always looking for new ways to improve council services and support local communities.
