Parking and travel strategy and orders

Parking strategy for the Cotswold district

Our parking strategy was adopted in Autumn 2010. It considers the needs of parking users and the actions needed to provide a sustainable modern parking service which reflects local issues and meets the demand for parking across the Cotswolds.

Future parking demand

At a cabinet meeting held in February 2017 the council adopted the ‘Cirencester Town Centre Off-Street Parking Study’ as Appendix 4 to the Parking Strategy. Appendix 4 addresses future parking demand.

Off street parking

Our off street parking order governs the way we manage off-street car parks across the district. We have issued a notice of variation to the off street parking charges. It is intended for the changes to take place on 1 September 2020.

Whiteway car park order 2020

A new off-street car park has been established in the grounds of the Rugby Football Club Cirencester. The new car park will provide parking during the construction phase of the proposed Waterloo multi-storey car park and for longer term permit-holder parking.

We have no statutory obligation to provide car parking.  The Whiteway Car Park will specifically address the needs of businesses and workers who drive in to the town and need to park all day.  The car park will provide 151 standard bays, 4 electrical vehicle charging bays, 3 wider bays for blue badge holders, motor cycle.

We are required to establish a new Cotswold District Council off-street parking places Order, to enable the regulation, charging and enforcement of the new car park. Failure to regulate and enforce the car park would result in abuse of the space and loss of income to the Council.
