Bridge Campaign

29th January 2019

Local MP, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, as called upon Gloucestershire County Council to help fund a much-needed pedestrian bridge in Moreton-in-Marsh crossing the railway line.

Sir Geoffrey was successful in securing £250,000 of funding as a result of the section 106 agreement for the Fire Service College development in the town and has urged the County Council to provide the remainder of the capital investment in this important piece of infrastructure.

The bridge, that would run parallel, to the existing road bridge would immeasurably improve pedestrian safety and allow the dismantling of the existing pavement thus giving cars and HGV’s valuable passing space.

Commenting on the bridge, Sir Geoffrey said:

“This is an extremely important piece of infrastructure that would guarantee the safety of pedestrians for the future in Moreton-in-Marsh.

“I have worked closely with County Cllr Nigel Moor on this project and Gloucestershire County Council must recognise the importance of it and provide the necessary funds. I have therefore written to the Leader Cllr Mark Hawthorne to strongly press this case.”

Ten Climate Actions To Celebrate

The Cotswolds

1. The UK passed the world’s first Climate Change Act over a decade ago with cross-party support. This gave us both a framework to set statutory carbon budgets and set up the independent Committee on Climate Change.

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.


Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
