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. Please see appraisal documents and maps below:

In addition, we have proposed a number of changes to the boundary of the conservation area, which includes a new conservation area in Geeston.

Please see summary of 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 the property boundary associated with No.11 and No. 12 Aldgate.
  • To extend the conservation area to include No. s 1 – 12A Ketco Avenue and the main office at the northern section of Ketco Avenue associated with Hanson cement works.
  • Minor amendments to rationalise the boundary of the conservation area.
