Community governance review - have your say

Release date: 17 August 2018

Community Governance Review 

We are currently undertaking a review of the following proposals put forward by several town/parish councils:  

  • to remove the current warding arrangements at town/parish level in respect of Bourton-on-the-Water, Fairford, Moreton-in-Marsh, South Cerney, and Tetbury;
  • to increase the overall number of councillors on Cirencester Town Council to 16 (from 15) by way of an increase, from one to two, of the number of councillors to represent the New Mills Ward (thereby ensuring that each town ward is represented by two councillors);
  • to increase the number of councillors on Upper Rissington Parish Council to either 9 or 11 (from 7) and, linked to the increase in councillor numbers, to consider the possible introduction of parish warding arrangements .

Residents and interested organisations are invited to submit their views on the proposals for change. The closing date for submissions is 20 September 2018.

Further details of the various proposals, maps (where appropriate), and consultation response forms can be accessed on our Consultations  web page.
