Rachael Shaw

Rachael was elected onto the Council in March 2016.

Pre election statement:

I moved to Moreton-in-Marsh just over 2 years ago with my Husband and Daughter.  As a working Mother I feel I can bring a different perspective to the Town Council, and contribute to the future direction of the town.

When looking for our new home we considered many towns/villages within the Cotswolds. What attracted us to Moreton as a young growing family was its balance between the size of the community and the amenities it has to offer.

If I am elected I would like to build on what makes Moreton-in-Marsh special, improve services where there is a short fall and preserve the town for our future generation.

With this in mind I think a vibrant high street is essential for both encouraging tourism and keeping the soul of the town alive for the residents.

Given the recent growth of Moreton-in-Marsh, I am concerned about any future inappropriate housing developments especially on green field sites. The main roads are already struggling with the volume of traffic. Parking is becoming an issue and deterring visitors. I also have concerns about the lack of pre-school childcare and the potential impact on St David’s School.

Before we have more houses we need less congestion, more jobs and to maintain those things that make Moreton-in-Marsh special.
