Brio Retirement

21st August 2018
Cllr Eddolls, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, Karl Hallows

Local MP, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, recently met with Stow Town Councillor, Ben Eddolls; Town Clerk, Heather Sipthop; and the Director of Development at Brio Retirement, Karl Hallows, to discuss what steps can be taken to ensure that Stow-on-the-Wold receives acceptable local investment following the construction of a new state-of-the-art retirement village in the town.

Sir Geoffrey stressed the importance of establishing a lasting commercial relationship between Brio and the town in order to contribute financially towards local infrastructure, such as the local cemetery paths and for annual events like the firework display.

Commenting on the meeting, Sir Geoffrey said:

“I am delighted to help Stow Town Council establish a lasting commercial relationship with Brio Retirement. The meeting that I facilitated was encouraging and appeared to establish a constructive relationship between the developer and the Town Council.

“The developer suggested that they were prepared to consider a capital investment by consulting local people in conjunction with the Parish Council on such projects as cemetry paths and also that they would be happy to contribute to local annual events. This is an excellent outcome.”

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.
