Have your say on our budget strategy
Release date: 13 December 2018
Cotswold District Council is seeking comments from local residents and businesses regarding the budget proposals for 2019/20 which will be considered at the Council meeting on 26 February 2019.
The deadline for commenting on the proposals is 5 pm on Friday 18 January 2019. You can provide feedback in a number of ways:
- by filling in the online consultation on budget and corporate strategies 2019/20
- by emailing your views to firstname.lastname@example.org or
- by sending written comments to: Mrs Jenny Poole, Chief Finance Officer at Cotswold District Council, Trinity Road, Cirencester, Glos, GL7 1PX
We have prepared a draft ten year financial strategy which includes indications of possible reductions to our funding from central government from April 2020. From April 2020 there is a high degree of uncertainty regarding central government funding as the outcome of the Governments ‘Spending Review’, Local Government ‘Fairer Funding Review’ and a changes to the value of Business Rates funding retained by the Council all come into effect.
To review the key points of the budget proposals for 2019/20 please see the draft medium term financial strategy 2019-20 to 2028/29(opens in a new window). This also includes other changes which will have a financial impact upon the Council.
Under the current Local Government funding mechanism, the Council is highly reliant upon its share of Business Rate income which is retained by the Council. Around 58% of the Council’s Government funding comes directly from Business Rates with the balance from New Homes Bonus and Rural Services Delivery Grant. This is a key strand of the Government policy to localise financing of local authorities and brings the potential for increased risks or increased rewards, depending upon the Council’s ability to raise business rate income.
Release date: 7 January 2019
Cotswold Tourism is leading a new tourism project which is set to launch to the international travel trade industry in 2019. This will help to promote tourism across the wider Cotswolds region following our success in gaining the award of £250,000 worth of funding through Year 3 of the UK Governments £40 million Discover England Fund.
The ‘Uncover the Cotswolds’ project should boost inbound tourism with a focus on attracting visitors from the Nordic markets, Italy and Spain. The aim will be to disperse visitors across the wider region and provide them with greater access to authentic local experiences.
The 2019 tourism year starts with a free training offer for tourism businesses in the Cotswold area, including some businesses that have already been identified by the tourism partnership, as offering unique experiences. However, there is capacity for more local unique tourism experience-led businesses to attend the these training sessions to learn more about the project.
On 18 January the first course will take place at the Tewkesbury Park Hotel. The morning session will cover how to develop an experience, including how to ‘package’ with other local businesses, as well as understanding more about the ‘Uncover the Cotswolds’project. There will then be an opportunity for businesses to network over a buffet lunch and then focus in the afternoon on how to enable online bookings for venues and attractions. The presenters will also investigate Visit England’s new tourism toolkit – Taking England to the World, and have an opportunity to learn from the experiences of successful tourism businesses.
The same course will run again at Rodbourough near Stroud on 21 January and Moreton-in-Marsh on 22 January (both kindly hosted by the Cotswold Inns and Hotels group). There will also be a sesssion in West Oxfordshire on 17 January at the Macdonald Bear Hotel Woodstock and Blenheim Palace.
Anyone interested in finding out more about how to get involved in the ‘Uncover the Cotswolds’ project should email email@example.com or register for updates via www.cotswolds.com/uncoverthecotswolds(opens in a new window)
Project leader for Cotswolds Tourism, Sally Graff, explains further:
“I am delighted that Cotswolds Tourism has secured this £250,000 funding and I would like to thank all our partners involved in the project. Working with local businesses, we want to develop authentic year round local tourism experiences, and create tours which can be booked in totality or in part, via tour operators, with different budget options available.”
“I would encourage tourism businesses in the area to liaise with Cotswolds Tourism and sign up for the free training sessions we are providing, Tourism is an important sector driving the local economy and we want to help everyone to exploit any opportunities to the full.”
Tourism businesses in Gloucestershire also have another opportunity to learn more about the work being done locally to promote tourism at a Gloucestershire tourism forum being held at Kingsholm Rugby Club on 31 January organised with Marketing Gloucester. This event will have workshops, speakers and updates to ensure tourism businesses can adapt to new trends in tourism, including the impact of digital marketing and accessible tourism.

New booklet helps prepare for emergencies
Release date: 28 November 2018
Across the District communities are always looking to improve their resilience in the event of an emergency, and a booklet has been produced by the Gloucestershire Local Resilience Forum to make the task easier.
The ‘Are You Ready?’ booklet provides clear practical advice to help people prepare for and respond to an emergency.
Advice includes: devising a family emergency plan; looking out for neighbours; establishing ‘emergency friends; community alarm systems; and coping with severe weather, security incidents and loss of power.
Cllr Sue Coakley, Cotswold District Council’s Cabinet Member responsible for community resilience, welcomes the ‘Are You Ready?’ booklet,
“This is an extremely useful resource. A lot of the information in the booklet is basic common sense, but bringing it all together has the power to actually save lives. ‘Are You Ready?’ had been designed so that people can refer to it easily and quickly in a wide range of emergency situations, and it also provides some very useful checklists and contact numbers.
You can download a copy of the booklet on the CDC website now.
Queries about the booklet should be directed to:
