Waste Collections Resume After the Snow

All Ubico crews are out this morning and the majority have travelled up to the Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold areas first to make the waste and recycling collections missed from yesterday.  Please note, however, that householders due a collection today should ensure that their bins and recycling containers are placed at the kerbside ready to be picked up.

The crews have been instructed to proceed with care because there are still patches of snow and ice which could cause problems for the vehicles and under-foot. Anywhere which is inaccessible will be recorded on problem sheets and waste and recycling will be picked up later in the week provided it is left at the kerbside.

NOTE: Residents who were missed on Monday 11 December will be provided with a special collection on Saturday 16 December, and should place their bins and recycling containers at the kerbside by 7 am on that day. They will be able to leave extra waste for collection provided it is bagged and placed by the side of the refuse bin.

We will provide a progress report later today. You can keep up to date with the latest advice on waste and recycling collections by checking the Council’s website: www.cotswold.gov.uk

Free Parking Offers Over Christmas

Cotswold District Council is reminding residents on Christmas shopping expeditions to remember that there are free parking offers available in several locations.

Motorists can park for free after 3 pm in several car parks across the District:

  • Brewery car park, Cirencester
  • Forum car park, Cirencester
  • Rissington Road, Bourton-on-the-Water
  • Old Market Way, Moreton-in-Marsh
  • Maugersbury Road, Stow-on-the-Wold
  • Church Street, Tetbury
  • West Street, Tetbury

Additionally, they can park for FREE ALL DAY on weekends and bank holidays at CDC’s Trinity Road office in Cirencester (GL71PX) and the St James’s Place offices in Cirencester (GL7 1FP). Both are only 5 minutes’ walk from the town centre.

Cllr Chris Hancock, CDC Cabinet Member for Enterprise and Partnerships, says:

“The continuing ‘free after 3 pm’ offer, together with the free weekend parking at Trinity Road and St James’s Place, should help save money for families who want to attend Christmas light switch-on and other festive events around the Cotswolds.  We also hope that these offers will encourage people to shop local throughout the festive season and boost trade in many shops across the District.”
