Call for Sites 2022

Rutland's new Local Plan must allocate sites to meet the housing, employment and other development needs of Rutland. 

We carry out a Call for Sites to better understand the availability of sites for allocation. 

This is the first stage of the Local Plan process.

It gives site promoters, town and parish councils, residents and other interested parties the chance to submit sites for us to consider. 

We will consider any submitted sites when developing the Local Plan and we'll develop a site assessment method as part of the plan making process. 

We will use the information received to inform a set of technical documents which will be part of our Evidence Base. This will include the:

  • Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA)
  • Employment Land Availability Assessment
  • Brownfield Land Register.

Uppingham Town Council are proposing to make allocations for housing and employment in the Uppingham Neighbourhood Plan Review. We will forward any relevant site submissions in and around Uppingham to the Town Council for their consideration.

No decision on which sites to include in the Local Plan will be taken at this stage. We will consult on the preferred site options as part of the Regulation 18 consultation, which follows the Issues and Options stage. This is currently due to be take place in summer 2023.

Submit your site

Go to the site submission form

The easiest way to submit your site is through the online form. If you are unable to use this form, please email: localplan@rutland.gov.uk.

If you have submitted a site submission in a past Call for Sites, you will need to resubmit through the current Call for Sites process. This is so our planning officers have the latest information available for site assessments

Submitting a site through the Call for Sites process only places the site for consideration as a potential site for future development. 

The inclusion of any site within this process does not indicate that it will be allocated or successfully obtain planning permission for development.
