Welcome to the Town Council's website.
The Council hope that the website will improve communication with the parishioners and enable the community to keep up to date with what the Council is currently involved with.
You can now easily access the Agenda for forthcoming Council Meetings and download the Minutes too. Take a look at the CALENDAR which gives details of forthcoming Council and Committee Meetings and any major events that are coming up in the town.
Keep an eye on the LATEST ITEMS section which indicates when any new information has been put on the site. This could be Minutes of Meetings or any important information received from the other local authorities like the Cotswold District Council or Gloucestershire County Council, indeed any organisation that has information or news which the Council think would be of interest to the community.
The Council hope that you will find the website useful. If you have any suggestions for additional information that could be included on this site please do get in touch.

Register of Electors Canvassers needed
Each year, Cottswold District Council is required to undertake a canvass of every property in the District to update the Register of Electors.
Part of this process is to make a personal visit to properties where there has been no response to two posted forms.
This year we have a number of areas (including Moreton) which need canvassers and are therefore looking for anyone who may be interested in helping out with these personal visits
For information, the following documents are attached:
- Details of the canvasser role
- List of parishes where canvassers are required this year
- An application form
If you, or anyone you know would be interested in helping out, please complete and return the attached application form to Sarah Dalby by 5pm on Monday 10 October.
For an informal chat or more details, please call on 01285 623229.
Thank you to all the Moreton residents who attended the parking consultationn event held on 17th September. 138 forms were submitted with the followng results (allocated numbers reflect the total responses weighted by preference);
1. High Street Car Park - 627
2. Old British Legion site - 510
3. 'Bund' site on the A44 north - 348
4. Redesdale Place - 294
5. University Allotments - 259
6. Swan Close - 206
The Town Council will immediately commence the legal process to have the High Street Car Park correctly designated and signed so that time limits on free parking can be enforced; this will take a number of months. Parking for business users will also be addressed.
In the next few weeks a meeting will be held with Gloucestershire County Council's parking team to review options for on-street parking which falls under their jurisdiction.
Subsequently, the Council will explore the possibility of acquiring the British Legion site for use in due course as a further car park.
