Cainscross
is a suburban community and parish in Gloucestershire, England, on the western outskirts of Stroud.[2][3] It is well served with local amenities, including a Post Office and a medium-sized Co-Operative supermarket. It is well connected to Stroud (only a twenty-five minute walk away) with frequent bus services to Stonehouse, Gloucester
Gloucester
and Cheltenham. The Stroudwater Canal

was 6,680 (in 2001) of which 14.6% are in the 5–14 age group. The area is predominantly white (98.4%) with a high proportion of lone parent households with dependent children in comparison to the Stroud

and county averages. 18.8% of the household rent from a social landlord, 6.2% of household are claiming housing benefit, and 22.4% of households have no car – again all much higher than the county or Stroud

profiles. Lone pensioner households are also high at 18.2% with smaller proportions of people providing unpaid care, and higher social service referrals for the over 75s than elsewhere. As a relatively prosperous parish within Gloucestershire, there are low levels of burglary, theft of motor vehicles, the numbers of serious and fatal road traffic accidents compared to the county average. The percentage of young offenders resident in the area and of children with low scores at key stages 1–3, are also below the Stroud

and county averages. The Parish Council is hoping to improve provision of community and youth facilities; these, along with levels of open space, were identified in the 2006 Parish Plan as key issues along with library, post office and evening bus services. The site of a former hospital is being redeveloped with community consultation involving a Bristol-based company with a strong regeneration record. A new Children’s Centre is being developed on the nearby Cashes Green Primary school site. Governance[edit] An electoral ward in the same name exists. Much of this ward is in the parish of Cainscross
Cainscross
but the ward stretches to Randwick. The total ward population taken at the 2011 census was 7,316.[4] References[edit]
