North Luffenham Response to RCC Local Plan

Individually we make a difference. Together we can make all the difference.

As advised during last weeks Zoom call, the Parish Council and Local Plan group are offering advice and input to village residents responding to the Local Plan Consultation
Local Parish Councils, CPRE and the Fight4Rutland campaign group have analysed the draft Local Plan and identified areas they feel should be challenged on the basis of either not being legal, sound, positively prepared or in line with National Guidelines.

  • Flawed Consultation Process 
  • Inaccurate  Population Projections 
  • Promoting unustainable Development
  • Poor Location of development
  • Overstating the housing supply requirements for Rutland
  • Location of affordable housing
  • Impact on Rutland Water area
  • Lack of sustainable transport

As you can see its quite a list! 
These issues need to be raised as part of this consultation process, to be brought to the attention of the Independent Inspector for the plan
If these issues are not formally challenged the Inspector will not investigate and rule on them

An overview of the details of the issues found with the plan are here:
