Rutland County Council Leader Oliver Hemsley has praised work carried out by Oakham Task and Finish Group to look at ways of improving Rutland’s County Town for the benefit of residents, visitors and local businesses.
Oakham Task and Finish Group was established in January 2018 to look at ideas for improving and enhancing the town and has representation from right across the community.
A detailed report containing recommendations developed by Oakham Task and Finish Group has been endorsed by Rutland County Council’s Growth, Infrastructure and Resources Scrutiny Panel and will be presented to Full Council on 17 December 2018.
“Everyone who has been involved in the Oakham Task and Finish Group has worked incredibly hard to look closely and carefully at the wide range of issues affecting Oakham and other high streets up and down the country. The result of this hard work is an extremely in-depth and detailed report which highlights key areas for improvement and suggests a way forward to achieve positive change for the town. The report has already been endorsed by our Growth, Infrastructure and Resources Scrutiny Panel and will soon be discussed by Full Council. As a Council, we are fully committed to supporting our market towns so that they can continue to thrive for many years to come. I would like to commend everyone who has made a contribution to the Oakham Task and Finish Group and to all those who helped to produce the report.”
Councillor Oliver Hemsley, Leader of Rutland County Council
