GATEWAY TOWN
Winchcombe Town Council is delighted to announce the inclusion of Winchcombe as a Gateway Town in the “Cotswold Gateway Project”. One of a number of Cotswold towns, Winchcombe is the ideal starting point for walking and cycling routes in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cotswolds National Landscape has worked with local communities to create ten Cotswold Gateway locations, from which people can follow walking and cycling routes to explore the surrounding countryside. These walking and cycling routes can be accessed and downloaded via QR codes from two new signs situated on Abbey Terrace and Back Lane car park.

UPDATE ON WINCHCOMBE PARK
EXCITING NEWS!
Most passers-by will have spotted that the archaeological survey has been completed and that the Archaeologists have left the site.
No doubt you will have also spotted that the site has not been back-filled this was at the Town Council’s request to help save money on the future earthworks.
We know that the Archaeologists found artefacts associated with the scheduled ancient monument, a roman villa, on the opposite side of Greet Road and we excitedly await their report telling us exactly what was unearthed.
Because artefacts were found the Town Council is now working closely with the Authorities to develop a scheme to protect the findings especially during the construction phase and for future prosperity.
Completing the archaeological survey means that all of the planning conditions have now been satisfied so the Council is currently engaged in the process of finding a suitable Contractor. The Procurement process has several phases to go through; the first phase (pre-qualification and shortlist of suitable contractors) has been completed and we hope to be issuing the tendering documents in the coming weeks.
The Town Council is also pleased to now be in a position to sign-off the legal documentation with the various interested parties so that the overhead electrical cable and associated pole-mounted transformer can be moved.
In the coming days, you will see contractors working on the fencing alongside the Greet Road removing the brambles towards the Pennylands end of the site, felling a single tree where the pedestrian access from Greet Road will be located, and removing dead saplings from the site (tree and saplings will be replaced later as part of the planting scheme). This is being done now before the start of the bird-nesting season.
Chairman, Cllr Willett said “It has taken a long time and we still have a way to go but I am sure you share the Council’s excitement having reached another significant milestone. Everyone’s patience is beginning to pay off”.
