Cotswold District Council will be waiving parking charges temporarily to support the launch of festive celebrations at several local market towns.
Christmas shoppers will be able to enjoy free parking to attend Christmas lights switch-ons and celebratory events in line with the following arrangements:
Thursday 1 December to Saturday 3 December
Tetbury: All Car Parks in Tetbury will be free of charge from 4pm on the 1 December until 6pm on Saturday the 3 December. (NOTE: Sunday is normally free parking, therefore parking will be free in Tetbury from 4pm on the 1st until 8am on 5th).
Friday 2 December
Chipping Campden: free all day at Market Square
Bourton-on-the-Water: free parking after 3 pm at Rissington Rd car park (donations to local charities will be accepted on the day).
Friday 9 December
Stow-on-the-Wold: free parking from 3 pm at Maugersbury Rd car park.
The recent freezing temperatures across Cotswold District have reminded us all that we need to take extra care now that winter is here.
With this in mind, Cotswold District Council is promoting a ‘Get ready for Winter’ page on its website which provides help and advice about preparing for winter and bad weather including, driving, school closures, possible disruptions to waste collections, flooding and snow.
See www.cotswold.gov.uk/residents/get-ready-for-winter/ for more information.
Nearly 2,000 square metres of the Fosseway and Station Road in Stow-on-the-Wold will be resurfaced from Monday, 5 December to Friday, 9 December.
Work will take place to improve the main route into Stow-on-the-Wold in time for Christmas.
To minimise disruption to traffic and Christmas trading for local businesses, the work will be carried out between 7pm and 11pm each day.
The work will take place from the traffic island next to the ‘Welcome to Stow-on-the-Wold’ sign up to the junction with Sheep Street.
To keep everyone safe while the large machinery is on site, the road will need to close to traffic during these times and a diversion will be in place via Burford and Chipping Norton, and vice versa.
Access will be maintained for pedestrians at all times.
The following roads will be closed between 4pm and 9pm on Friday 2nd December 2016 for the Christmas Fayre:
High Street from Post Office corner to the bottom of Moore Road
Moore Road to Coach Park Walk
Victoria Street from the High Street to Chester House Hotel including Victoria Terrace.
Access to Moore Road above the road closure will not be compromised.
