Edith Weston Parish Council

WE ARE AT A CRITICAL POINT IN RCC'S PLANS TO DEVELOP ST GEORGES BARRACKS

YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THESE MEETINGS

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR FIGHT AND ATTEND

We NEED to show the Councillors of Rutland that we do not support RCC's plans BEFORE THEY CAST THEIR VOTE!

On Monday 20th January and Monday 27th January 2020 Rutland County Councillors are being asked to vote on 3 major issues which effect the whole of Rutland. More »

We are a critical stage for the future of Edith Weston. Please attend these meetings.

Monday 20th January 2020 7:00 PM – Council Chambers Catmose, Oakham

The Councillors will vote on two issues - Whether or not to accept the Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) grant funding and the Councils Corporate Plan 2019-2024.

Back in January 2019 the decision to submit the HIF application was won by RCC by just one vote. Hundreds of people from across the whole county attended. We need to get that same level of support, and more, to this meeting. We need to do our very best to try and influence the vote in our favour. We want the Councillors to see that we do not support RCC's plans. This is an important message for everyone in our village to hear and act on.

We urge you to attend and please spread the word to your neighbours and friends across the whole county.

Monday 27th January 2020 7:00 PM – Council Chambers Catmose, Oakham

At this meeting the following week the Councillors will be asked to support the Rutland Local Plan and allow it to proceed to the next stage. The proposed Local Plan includes the development of St Georges Barracks. This is the pre-submission version of the Local Plan and is the version presented to the Planning Inspector. This will be after a public consultation which is intended to start in February. At regulation 19 the planning inspector is in the driving seat. We then lose even more control, as do our Councillors.

You need to know that the SGB masterplan we have been consulted on previously is now out the window. If the Local Plan is agreed by the planning inspector at the final stage of the review process, THE POLICIES IN OUR LOCAL PLAN ARE OUR ONLY PROTECTION. The Local Plan is written to allow the SGB development to happen.

We need to stop the Local Plan plan in its current form going to regulation 19. RCC have made some changes to try and disguise the development at St Georges but we are not fooled, the message from RCC is still the same.

IF THERE ARE ANY LATEST MINUTE UPDATES ABOUT EITHER OF THESE MEETINGS WE WILL POST A MESSAGE ON THE VILLAGE NOTICE BOARD ON CHURCH LANE AND AT OUR VILLAGE SHOP
