Local Plan Review

We are reviewing the Local Plan in order to extend the plan period to 2036 and to provide for any additional new housing, employment or other development that may be needed over the extended plan period.

Additional Consultation

We are now carrying out an additional consultation to consider the implications of potential development at St George’s Barracks and other sites that have been promoted for development since the Consultation Draft Local Plan was issued for public consultation.

The consultation will invite comments on two separate documents:    

  1. Focused Changes to the Local Plan after including St George’s Barracks in the Plan
  2. Additional Sites put forward for possible development since the Consultation Draft Local Plan 2017

Focused Changes to the Local Plan

The purpose of this first document is to consider the implications of including the potential redevelopment of St George’s Barracks, when it closes in 2021, in the next Local Plan.  

This provides an opportunity to reduce the size of housing allocations in locations across the County from what was proposed in the Consultation Draft Local Plan published in July 2017.

Additional Sites

The second document sets out details of additional sites put forward for development by landowners and potential developers since we published the Consultation Draft Rutland Local Plan in July 2017.  

These additional sites are still to be assessed to decide if they are suitable to be considered within the Rutland Local Plan.  They are set out so views from the public and interested groups can be gathered to help determine appropriate land use allocations in the next version of the Local Plan.

This is an additional round of non-statutory public consultation, following previous discussions on the Consultation Draft Local Plan (August to September 2017) and the Issues and Options Consultation (November 2015 to January 2016).

How to take part

Comments on these documents are invited as part of a six-week consultation  starting on Monday 13th August 2018 and ending at 4.45pm on Monday 24 September 2018.

Comments can be submitted via an online survey using the links above.

Printed comment forms are also available on request.

Consultation Draft Plan

We will consider all the comments received before preparing the next Submission Draft version of Rutland's Local Plan for public consultation. 

We expect to publish this for further consultation at the end of 2018, prior to it being submitted to the government for independent examination in 2019.

Details of the evidence base supporting the preparation of the Local Plan Review can be viewed on our Local Plan Evidence Base page.

Issues and Options

We published an Issues and Options consultation document in 2015 as the first stage in reviewing our Local Plan. 

This asked for views on 20 key questions to be considered in the plan and the possible options for dealing with these issues.
