Electrical vehicle charging points

Two rapid vehicle charging points have been installed in two of our Council Car Parks. The rapid chargers  allow motorists to charge their electrical vehicles in 30 minutes. It costs £4.00 to charge and park for a maximum of one hour.

The car parks are at Old Market Way, Moreton-in-Marsh, GL56 0JY and Beeches Road, Cirencester, GL7 1BW.

The electrical vehicle charging points are operated by Charge Your Car, for questions about how to charge visit the Charge Your Car website or call 01912 605625.

Parking restrictions for the electrical charging bays:

  • The electrical vehicle must be connected and charging
  • The parking space is for electrical vehicles only
  • There is a 1 hour maximum limit and the car must then be moved to another space if the owner wishes to remain parked.
  • Failure to comply with the parking restrictions may result in a penalty charge notice.

Motorhome parking

The council has one off street car park that is able to accommodate motor home style vehicles; unfortunately this does not include overnight stays. The site is Maugersbury Road car park, Stow-on-the-Wold, GL54 1AQ.

If this car park is not convenient, try the Waterloo, Cirencester, GL7 2PY, or Beeches, Cirencester, GL7 1BW. If your camper van occupies more than one space, you must purchase a ticket equivalent to the number of spaces taken.

Blue badge parking

Blue badge holders must pay to park at the Market Square car park in Chipping Campden as this isn't owned by the Council.

Valid blue badge holders may park free of charge in any other Cotswold District Council car park (as listed above) up to the maximum stay of that car park. You must clearly display your blue badge and time clock at all times on the dashboard of the vehicle, and park within the marked bay.

On street parking

Gloucestershire County Council is responsible for on street parking. Badge holders will need to look out for signs indicating where the disabled persons badge can be used. A blue badge does not give the badge holder the right to free parking automatically and some places still charge even if you display a blue badge. You should always read the nearest parking signs.
