Free 20-minute parking bays introduced across the Cotswolds

Cotswold District Council has created 12 free 20-minute spaces at car parks in Moreton-in-Marsh, Tetbury and Cirencester to support local visitors.

The free 20-minute spaces can be found in Cotswold District Council owned car parks: Brewery (Cirencester) - four bays, Forum (Cirencester) - four bays, Old Market Way (Moreton) - two bays and Church Street (Tetbury) - two bays.

All of the newly introduced free 20-minute parking spaces are clearly marked with signage to indicate the space and are suitably located for a quick stop to run an errand or two.

Cllr Mike Evemy, deputy leader and cabinet member for parking, said: "I'm pleased to announce that we are now offering free short-stay parking at four of our car parks across the District.

"We want to make short trips to our town centres convenient and easily accessible for shoppers and visitors. That's why we've introduced the new 20-minute free parking bays and continue to offer free parking after 3 pm in several of our car parks."

Residents can also park for free all day on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays at the staff car parks at Cotswold District Council, Trinity Road, Cirencester, GL71PX and St James's Place, Hammond Way, Cirencester, GL7 1FP (next to the Leisure Centre). Both car parks are less than a five-minute walk from the centre of Cirencester.

The following car parks continue to remain free after 3 pm every day: The Brewery in Cirencester, The Forum in Cirencester, West Street in Tetbury, Church Street in Tetbury, Rissington Road in Bourton on the Water, Maugersbury Road in Stow on the Wold and Old Market Way in Moreton in Marsh.
