DAGLINGWORTH PARISH POTHOLE REPORTING

If you have concerns regarding potholes along the roads in our Parish, please can you report them using the Pothole hotline or 08000514514 or gloucestershire.gove.uk/reportit

The Parish Council do monitor the condition of the roads and report to GCC Highways on regular basis but it would help if parishioners reported their own concerns.

Thank you,

Daglingworth Parish Council


FULL STEAM AHEAD AFTER COUNCIL BACKS RAIL STUDY

Plans to build a new railway line from Kemble to Cirencester are back on
track after councillors agreed to bridge a funding gap.

Fundraising for a £53,000 feasibility study on the line had hit the
buffers until a meeting of Cotswold District Council signalled a
£13,000 cash injection to make up the shortfall.

Now the plan, which has been four years in the making, can be put into
motion with the aim of unlocking Government funding from a £500m pot
designed to reopen lines closed in the 1960s following the Beeching
Report.

CDC Cabinet member Cllr Mark Harris, who, with Cllr Tony Berry, has been
involved with the Cirencester Community Railway since its inception,
proposed a motion for the monies to be granted at a meeting of the full
Council last week which was duly passed.

Cllr Harris said: “Being able to carry out this feasibility study is the
first step in bringing forward the line which will be of tremendous
benefit for commuters and tourists alike.

“It will also be a very light railway which will have minimal impact on
the environment and encourage people to stop using their cars for
commuting, so helping our commitment to combating climate change.”

It is intended to build a single-track line with passing places which
will follow the old route as far as possible before terminating near the
centre of Cirencester.

The service will then link in with the recently dualled line between
Swindon and Kemble which in turn connects to London Paddington.

It is hoped that the new line will also provide a template for others in
the Cotswolds, including Tetbury and Bourton.
