Help shape Rutland County Council Local Plan

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 17:48 by Barbara Shirley

Rutland residents are being given the opportunity to share their views and help shape Rutland's Local Plan, during an eight-week consultation that runs until Monday 25th September.

The Local Plan provides planning policies for the whole of Rutland, as well as identifying the main locations for future development in the County.

The latest version of the Local Plan is currently being reviewed with the aim of extending the plan period from 2026 to 2036, setting out where additional new housing, employment and other development will be needed during this time. More »

As part of this process, the Council is seeking people's views on a new Draft Local Plan that identifies provisional sites for additional employment, retail, waste management and minerals-related development, along with space for approximately 1,700 additional new homes to meet housing needs in Rutland over the plan period.

Cllr Oliver Hemsley, Portfolio Holder for Growth, Trading Services and Resources, said: "This is a great opportunity for local people to get involved and help shape future development in Rutland. One of the Council's main aims is to help deliver sustainable growth in the county – growth that meets the needs of both current and future generations of residents while also protecting our rural environment. We are keen to hear feedback from residents and local businesses to ensure the Local Plan reflects the needs, expectations and views of our community."
