Cotswold District Council will include a tourism charge of 50p for each stay at our Rissington Road car park from 8 March.  We estimate this will raise £25,000 a year for the Council to spend in Bourton-on-the-Water. 

Any additional money generated, or not spent, will be carried over for use in future years. 

We would like views from the local community on how we should spend this money. You can help us by filling out this survey.

We have some initial ideas which are listed in the survey. We would like your opinion on these ideas as well as any other ideas you may have.

Thank you for your time.
