On 25th Sep Cllrs Milne and Jarron attended a briefing held jointly by Rutland County Council and the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The key points raised by the Chief Executive in her introduction were:

  • The MoD decided last year that St George's Barracks would close by 2021 – this decision at present remains extant.
  • Since then MoD and RCC have been in active discussions about the possibility of developing a Private/Private Partnership designed to maximize the potential for the site.
  • The site was a 300 Hectare Brownfield site with enormous potential in a most favorable position close to A1 / A47, and Rutland Water.

CE RCC identified the shared vision that was being developed. The intent was to create:

  • A new 'Garden village', – the new village would be well-designed, built to a high quality and attractive to meet local housing needs, including affordable housing.
  • A business enterprise zone
  • Leisure and recreation facilities
  • Minerals extraction

She indicated that this would be a long term project with phased development over 10-15 years. With supporting infrastructure, including roads, Utilities, Broadband etc being put in place prior to development.

The Parish Council have indicated their wish to work closely with MoD and to be able to represent the views of the villagers of Edith Weston. Helen Briggs, the Chief Executive has agreed to come to Edith Weston to present the Council's vision to the village. This meeting will be on Tuesday 31st October at 1900 in the Village Hall.
