Moreton-in-Marsh Town Council has sent its response to the Green Infrastructure Strategy consultation, being run by Cotswold District Council.

The response outlines where the Town Council believes improvements can be made on the three central themes of the Green Infrastructure Strategy: wildlife, water and wellbeing. Among the ambitions outlined are flood relief, habitat improvement, protecting and enhancing green space, and increasing access to green space for residents of the town.

Please read the Moreton-in-Marsh Town Council Green Infrastructure Strategy Response to see what and where these measures could be delivered. If you feel you might be able to help the Town Council achieve its aims, please contact us.

Commenting on the response, Cllr Clive Webster, Co-Chair of the Planning and Infrastructure Committee, said, “This response shows just how ambitious this Town Council is when it comes to tackling chronic issues in a climate-conscious way.

“From planting trees to reduce flood risk, to creating wildlife corridors, to joining up walking and cycling routes, this is a plan I hope all residents of Moreton-in-Marsh will benefit from.”

The plan will be considered by Cotswold District Council, who will publish the final draft of the Green Infrastructure Strategy in due course. Once adopted, this strategy can inform how development occurs in the local area and potentially identify projects that can be funded from developer contributions.
