Cotswold DC chairman supports decision on Moreton

Cotswold District Council Chairman, Cllr Sue Jepson, has spoken out in support of the Cabinet's decision on the future of customer services in Moreton-in-Marsh.

The Centre, in the town's High Street, provides customer advice to local people and visitors and used by almost 50 Cotswold voluntary groups and organisations.

A report to the Council's Cabinet set out potential options for the future of the building, but District Council Leader Cllr Lynden Stowe yesterday made it clear that a sale was not on the cards.

The Cabinet decided to maximise income from the Centre by letting out any available free space.

Cllr Jepson said: "I'm very pleased that the Cabinet has made it clear to residents that the Council has never had any intention of selling the building.

"The Council is committed to continuing to provide a first-class customer service for local people and visitors to Moreton-in-Marsh. I know our staff in the town are highly regarded by the public and they have my full support."
