Coronavirus - Council facilities and meetings


The Government has confirmed that elections on 7 May have been postponed due to COVID-19.

Council meetings

The Coronavirus situation means that meetings are liable to change or cancellation.


There may be a delay in processing payments by cheque over the next couple of months. Please pay online or by phone if you can.

Car Parks

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus (Covid -19) we have decided to suspend all our car park charges until further notice.

All season tickets for car parks are being extended for an extra month free of charge. 

Leisure centres

All leisure centres in the Cotswold District are now closed. Visit the Everyone Active website if you have questions about your membership, and to find out how to exercise online.


The Corinium museum is now closed until further notice.


Government restrictions mean we are having to close our cemeteries at Chesterton and Stratton in Cirencester apart from when funerals and burials are taking place. We understand this may be distressing for some.

Funerals will be limited to a maximum of 10 immediate family members which may include the following:

  • spouse or partner
  • parents or carers
  • brothers and sisters
  • children and partners

Where there are no immediate family attending then a maximum of four carers and friends may attend.
