Moreton-in-Marsh Town Council


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.


Croquet Club Survey 

Moreton-in-Marsh Town Council has been approached by residents wishing to establish a Croquet Club on Council owned land in Redesdale Place behind the Bowling Club. The proposal is to lease a portion of the land to the West of the Bowls Club, retaining an access pathway to the rest of the site.

 The aim of this short survey is to obtain your views to inform the Council’s decision.

 This survey will run from Saturday 8th February until midnight on Sunday 23rd February 2020 when it will close.

For paper copies of the survey please call in at the Town Council office or Moreton Area Centre.

Background information see item final minute in draft minutes from 28 January 2020

 Biodiversity Work is starting in Blenheim Meadow

Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s ERDF Wild Towns, in partnership with Moreton-in-Marsh Town Council are working to improve Moreton in Marsh’s greenspaces for both wildlife and people. Interventions will take place in two parks in the town, Queen Victoria Gardens and Blenheim Meadow, along with two of the town’s cemeteries and one of the allotment sites. Work is planned to take place over a 3 year period with activities starting now.

Blenheim Meadow has a variety of wet meadows, balancing ponds and streams within it. These habitats will be enhanced through management and creation of new features to create better structure within the existing features.

Meadow areas will be supplemented with plug plants and wildflower seeding to diversify the species found within them.

The neighbouring balancing ponds will have the scrub within them rotationally managed (through regular work parties with local volunteers) to provide a more diverse age structure, along with marginal planting to provide habitat for birds, mammals and amphibians which reside there.

Along the stream that flows through the park, two ponds will be dug. These will provide another habitat dimension to benefit amphibians, aquatic invertebrates and others such as dragonflies and damselflies.

- Blenheim Park will be enhanced for wildlife through the establishment of two wet meadows towards to southern end of the site.

- Balancing ponds on site will be brought back into a 4-year rotational coppice cycle in order to promote better age-structure of regenerating willow and alder.

- Marginal planting at the edge of these ponds will encourage greater biodiversity still.

- Two junction ponds will be excavated where streams converge in Blenheim Park, to provide extra pond habitats for wildlife.

- Tree planting and provision of roosting opportunities for bats will also be installed at Blenheim Park.

 The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is asking for volunteers to help with scrub cutting on 19th October and 30th October, meeting at the bridge in Blenheim Meadow at 10am.

Location finder - what3words

Gloucestershire Police and South Western Ambulance Service are now using what3words. This means if you need to contact the police and are having trouble describing where you are, you can use the app to tell them your exact location.

what3words has labelled every 3m x 3m square in the world with an address made of three random words from the dictionary. For example, the 3 word address of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square is ///this.fantastic.notes

All you need to do is download the free what3words app. You’ll be able to see and share the 3 word address of your current location and also find out the 3 word address of your home (by typing in your address and selecting the square containing your front door).
