Local Planning Authorities must have a Local Plan that sets out the local planning policies for their area.

Rutland’s updated Local Plan sets out where any additional new housing, employment or other development may be needed in future years and will cover the period from 2018 to 2036.

Members of the Council’s Growth, Infrastructure and Resources Scrutiny Committee are asked to review the Pre-Submission Rutland Local Plan 2018-2036 and provide any comments for consideration.

Rutland County Council’s Cabinet will then be asked to recommend the Pre-Submission Local Plan to Full Council on 27th January 2020, where a Council resolution is required before the Publication version can be published for consultation.

The Pre-Submission version of the Local Plan must be published for six weeks to invite comments and feedback before the document and all supporting evidence are submitted to the Government for public examination by an independent Planning Inspector.

The Growth, Infrastructure and Resources Scrutiny Committee will meet in the main Council Chamber at Rutland County Council’s Catmose offices on Thursday 16 January, starting at 7.00pm.

The agenda and reports for this meeting have been published and can be viewed on our Meetings page.

Members of the public are able to ask questions and present deputations at the meeting. These must be submitted to the Council in writing.

For further details regarding the deadlines for questions and deputations, please email: governance@rutland.gov.uk or call: 01572 758 271.

A period of 30 minutes is allocated to listen and respond to questions and deputations at meetings. The Council will often seek to provide a written reply to these – particularly if a lengthy or detailed response is required – so as to give members of the public as much of the allotted time as possible to speak.
