Local Plan Consultation extended to close at 4:15 on Friday 6th November

  • Representations Guide Edith Weston (PDF, 343 Kb)


    We are asking each person in the village to make at least one representation to the draft regulation 19 local plan. Some will do many more, but if everyone did at least one, it would tell the Inspector the depth of feeling.

    We have just over 2 weeks left to prepare and submit these, as these must be received by 4:15pm on Friday 9th October.

    Please find attached a guidance sheet which we hope will be helpful. Please don't be intimidated by this, it is technical but you, as a lay person, are not expected to be an expert and you are entitled to have your say. This may well be YOUR last chance to stop SGB being a TOWN!


Whilst our representation is free, the commissioning of a well reputed barrister, who is an expert at local plans of course costs money – and I am writing to ask for your help.

Collectively we need to raise £30,000 – of which £7500 has already been pledged. Because of Covid, we cannot have events or activities to raise the money – so we are having to be direct and ask you for a donation to the Parish Council.

There are two ways you can do this:

  • Bank transfer Via BACS is preferred (Reference Donation) to Edith Weston Parish Council, Sort code 40-35-21, Account 40322105
  • or a cheque made payable to Edith Weston Parish Council and sent, or hand delivered to Mrs C Gwilliam, 4 Normanton Cottages, Empingham Road, Normanton, Rutland, LE158RW.

All donations will be treated in absolute confidence and will only be noted to create a total sum by the clerk, and we will send out a weekly update – with a total amount donated. As a Parish Council we duty bound to ensure that any monies are spent wisely, and if there any monies left over will be put to good use in our Parish.

Together we can do this – it's a lot to ask – but IF we get a new VILLAGE as a new neighbour and NOT a TOWN, I am sure you will agree it will be money very well spent.

A HUGE THANK YOU, we promise to do our absolute best to represent you and protect our village.
