Conservation Area Appraisals

We have published Conservation Area Appraisals for a number of villages in Rutland.

These appraisals show why the Conservation Areas have been designated and how their special character will be preserved and enhanced. They will be taken into account by us when we consider planning applications include information on:

  • Boundaries
  • Open spaces and trees
  • Buildings of local importance
  • Highways

Ketton Conservation Area

As part of our statutory duties, we have undertaken a review of Ketton Conservation Area, and have produced a ‘Conservation Area Appraisal’ which defines the special interest of the conservation area and puts forward proposals for enhancement, in line with our statutory duties within Section 69 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas)  Act 1990. 

As a result of the Conservation Area Appraisal the Council proposed a series of changes to the conservation area for Ketton. These changes were subject to public consultation during September and October 2019. On 17th March 2020 Rutland County Council formally adopted the Ketton Conservation Area Appraisal (2020 Review)

Please see proposals below:

  • To designate a new conservation area in Geeston, forming a smaller character zone of Ketton.
  • To extend the conservation area to include the former railway station building, Station Road.
  • To extend the conservation area to include ‘The Paddock’ on Hunts Lane, and Nos. 1-3 Hunts Lane. 
  • To extend the conservation area to include the field between No.6 and No.8 High Street.
  • To extend the conservation area to include all of the outbuildings at Home Farm, off High Street.
  • To extend the conservation area to include the avenue of Trees at Edmonds Drive, Aldgate.
  • To extend the conservation area to include all the property boundary associated with No.11 and No. 12 Aldgate.
  • To rationalise the boundary of the conservation area at The Dovecote, adjacent Manor Barn, High Street in accordance with existing property boundary to include the immediate land surrounding it which forms part of the setting of the building. 
  • Minor amendments to rationalise the boundary of the conservation area.

The  Ketton Conservation Area Appraisal (2020 Review) includes the following documents:

The implications of the current Coronavirus pandemic on working arrangements means that is it not currently possible to print copies of these documents. Once the Council returns to normal working arrangements we will be able to make printed copies of the documents available on request.
