Community Governance Review Drop-In On 30 January

Community Governance Review? What’s that all about then?

You may recall that Cotswold District Council wrote to all households in Upper Rissington last year seeking feedback on the future of Upper Rissington Parish Council. Currently the Council has seven members; a request has been made to increase the number of councillors to nine or 11 and to consider introducing warding.

The initial consultation did not lead to any clear view from residents on either future councillor numbers or the introduction of parish warding. The consultation has now been re-opened for further comment – until 18th February.

In addition, CDC will be holding an exhibition/drop-in session between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday 30th January 2019 in the Community Room at Upper Rissington Village Hall. Nigel Adams, Electoral Services Officer for Cotswold District Council, will be on hand to answer all your questions and listen to your views about the future of the Parish Council.

A letter has been sent to all households in the Parish by first class post – a copy is attached below for your information.

To comment on the review, you may complete the consultation comments form (below), or email or write to Nigel Adams directly, at the CDC Offices, Trinity Road, Cirencester, GL7 1PX.

If you have already submitted a response to the review, and your views have not changed, then you do not need to do anything – your views will be taken into account when CDC considers the options.
