More than 15,000 people attended last year's event
Attempts are being made to see if Gloucestershire's annual cheese-rolling competition can go ahead after it was cancelled amid health and safety fears.
Organisers of the event at Cooper's Hill near Brockworth said 15,000 people attended last year's event - more than three times the site's capacity.
A council spokesman said it was looking at setting-up a meeting to see what can be done to support the event.
The event, which was due to take place on 31 May, was cancelled last week.
"Whatever happens it's important to keep the tradition going," the spokesman added.
Councillor Mark Hawthorne said: "The organisers of this great Gloucestershire tradition have done a fantastic job and whatever happens it's vital that we ensure that the cheese-rolling continues to retain this unique spirit and atmosphere for many years to come."
We're looking...to see if anything can be done to support the cheese-rolling committee in delivering this year's event."
The council said as the event had gained in popularity so had the number of people attending.
It said that apart from the health and safety aspects, organisers needed to respect the concerns of people, some of whom had property damaged by people climbing over fences.
The competition, which dates back hundreds of years, involves participants chasing a 7lb Double Gloucester cheese down the hill in a series of races.
The winner of each race wins the cheese.
