Businesses and residents in Cirencester will be invited to give their views on three shortlisted designs for the new Waterloo Car Park.

An exhibition will be held between July 15-26 in the King Charles room at the Fleece in Cirencester Market Place between 9am and 5pm each day. It will detail, for the first time, how Cotswold District Council's plans for the new car park could look and offer the opportunity to vote for a favourite design.

Votes and comments will then help the council to decide which two options should go head to head.

There will also be a special drop in session on Thursday July 18 , also at The Fleece, between 1pm and 6.30pm where those involved in the project will be on hand to answer questions.

Councillor Mark Harris, cabinet member for car parks said: "This is a great opportunity for Cirencester residents to comment on the options for this much needed new car park.

"We've been keen to ensure that local people are kept up to date with our progress with the scheme, and it's important that they now have a chance to review and comment on the options for how the new car park will look.

"We want to choose a design that is practical inside whilst having a look that respects our heritage and townscape and at the same time has 'wow factor'.

"We want residents and visitors to say how cool the Cirencester car park is."

Anyone unable to attend the exhibition can give their view via a survey which will available at
