Future Rutland Conversation Project

The Future Rutland Conservation Project aims to involve local people in a process that will develop a new vision and aspirations for the county – one that will help Rutland County Council to co-create new strategies and policies to achieve these goals.

The Future Rutland Conversation follows a commitment made in Rutland County Council’s latest Corporate Plan (2019-2024) to develop a 50-year vision that will identify key priorities, emerging issues and give the county a long-term plan of action.

Work on the 50-year vision was due to begin in 2020 but paused due to COVID-19. Recognising that COVID-19 has since led to dramatic changes in the way we live and work, and that the impact of these changes will be felt throughout our society for many years to come, the Future Rutland Conversation aims to understand what matters most to residents and businesses in the county – both now and in a post-COVID world.
