It would be helpful if as many villagers as possible could attend the following meetings at R.C.C. (Council Offices: Catmose House, Catmose Street, Oakham LE15 6HP).
On Thursday 19th December at 7.00 pm there will be a Public Scrutiny Meeting and the aim of the meeting is to question council officials on the agenda for the meeting of the Cabinet on Monday 23rd December at 6.00 pm at which the Cabinet will discuss and decide what to present to the Councillors for their decision early in the New Year. This basically will be future development in the county and will largely be focused on St. George’s Barracks (SGB). At both meetings the following will be discussed:
The terms and conditions of the Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF). The Spatial Strategy of Rutland (a decision as to how St. George’s Barracks fits into the Local Plan). St. George’s Barracks versus development at Woolfox. Other issues are viability, sustainability, transport, environment and cost assessments.
Local parish councillors will be making the views of residents known in deputations but unfortunately the public is not allowed to speak unless questions/deputations have been submitted beforehand. However a good turnout will give a sense of the feeling towards the development and help residents understand the effects that the St. George’s Barracks development will have on our communities and the county.
So please do come along if you can.
