Better council services for North Cotswold residents

Cotswold District Council is investing in the North Cotswolds to provide improved face-to-face services at its Moreton Area Centre.

The Moreton Area Centre reception and atrium facilities will be refurbished to provide a more welcoming and safer user experience, including new carpeting and painting, updated signage and new screens to keep customers and staff safe.

Joe Harris, leader of Cotswold District Council, said: "The Moreton Area Centre is due a refresh and this improvement work will help us provide the high quality services we all expect through a modern, accessible facility in the North Cotswolds for residents to use.

"We'll be working hard to make these improvements to our Moreton Area Centre and we look forward to welcoming residents back to a fresh, modern and Covid safe environment.

"During the pandemic, the council has adapted to support residents to ensure that council services continue to function. I would like to encourage residents to continue to use our web and phone services where possible while we do the work."

Clive Webster, district councillor for Moreton West, said: "I was delighted to see the Area Centre on Moreton High Street reopen recently. Many people of the North Cotswolds rely on being able to drop in, either to talk face-to-face with the excellent staff that work there, or to do something in person that can't be done over the phone or online. These planned improvements clearly demonstrate the council's commitment to Moreton-in-Marsh and the North Cotswolds."

Works will begin tomorrow (28th May) and are expected to be completed by Sunday 6th June. Moreton Area Centre will be closed from 28th May and will reopen to the public on Monday 7th June.

During the closure, customers are encouraged to visit the council website for more information or telephone 01285 623000. People can also visit the customer services centre at Trinity Road in Cirencester during the works.
