The council has urged Cotswold residents to give their thoughts on parking in the district.

The Cotswold District Council is launching a consultation to discuss existing parking provision and consider factors that have impacted parking since a strategy was last drawn up in 2016.

These factors include climate change considerations, the COVID-19 pandemic, economic issues, and the cost-of-living crisis.

Cllr Tony Dale, cabinet member responsible for economics and council transformation, called for public participation in this consultation, which commenced on Monday (January 15) and concludes on Monday, February 12.

He said: "We want to hear from residents as well as business owners about parking in the Cotswold district.

"Your views will enable us to develop a parking strategy that is fit for our car park users.

"We want to know where you park, the purpose of your visit and what could be improved about specific car parks, among other things.

"It’s really important we hear from those who know the car parks best and we’d appreciate any feedback you have.”

The consultation will help the council establish a new strategy that details how improvements can be delivered, in collaboration with the county council, parish councils and other organisations where possible.
