St George's site

St George’s Barracks in North Luffenham has been announced for intended disposal by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) through its Better Defence Estate announcement. This is part of the MOD’s strategy to rationalise the Defence Estate. 

The closure of St George’s Barracks will not come into effect until 2020/21 at the earliest, after which the site will be vacant.

In the long-term, St George’s Barracks is a brownfield site and is likely to be redeveloped. 

The St George’s project is a joint initiative between Rutland County Council, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and other local partners to look at possible options for the future of St George’s Barracks after the base closes in 2020/21.

The focus of our partnership is on making sure any future development is sensible, sustainable and meets local needs.

Please take a look at our St George's FAQ to learn more about the intended closure of St George's Barracks and the partnership between the Council and the MOD.

Further information will be published on this page as it becomes available.

Latest news

Following on from Public Parish Briefings that took place in October and November 2017, the Council and Ministry of Defence held two Focus Group sessions in the Officer's Mess at St George's Barracks on Monday 29 January.

St George's Focus Group 01

The sessions were attended by close to 150 people who were either members of surrounding communities or had expressed an interest in taking part from the wider Rutland community.

Each session lasted for just over an hour and a half, during which time participants were asked to highlight what they felt was important with respect to any future redevelopment of St George's Barracks.

All of the feedback gathered at these focus groups will be collated, published on this page and used to help inform master planning for the St George's site, ahead of further engagement and consultation.

The short introductory presentation delivered at the start of each focus group session can be viewed here.


The feedback gathered at these sessions has also been been collected and can be viewed below:
