New council ward boundaries for Rutland

You may be aware that the Local Government Boundary Commission is asking local people for their help to draw up a new pattern of council wards for Rutland County Council and are holding a consultation that will run from Tuesday 25th July to Monday 2nd October.

The consultation is the first part of an electoral review which will re-draw ward boundaries across the area with the aim of ensuring that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters. The review also aims to ensure that the new council wards reflect, as far as possible, the interests and identities of communities across Rutland. Please note that the commission has recommended that the number of councillors should remain the same.

Consultation on the Future of Healthwatch Services for Rutland

Rutland County Council are undertaking a joint consultation with Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council to consider our options for the future provision of Healthwatch services in each of the local authority areas from April 2018.

They have jointly produced an online survey to collect views from the public and professionals alike – both those who currently use Healthwatch services and those who might wish to in the future.  Hard copies of the consultation will also be available at GP surgeries and libraries across Rutland.

The survey is open from Tuesday 1st August to Friday 8th September at: https://consultations.leicester.gov.uk/adult-social-care-health-and-housing/healthwatch-proposals

Help shape Rutland County Council Local Plan

Rutland residents are being given the opportunity to share their views and help shape Rutland’s Local Plan, during an eight-week consultation that runs until Monday 25th September.

The Local Plan provides planning policies for the whole of Rutland, as well as identifying the main locations for future development in the County.

The latest version of the Local Plan is currently being reviewed with the aim of extending the plan period from 2026 to 2036, setting out where additional new housing, employment and other development will be needed during this time.

As part of this process, the Council is seeking people’s views on a new Draft Local Plan that identifies provisional sites for additional employment, retail, waste management and minerals-related development, along with space for approximately 1,700 additional new homes to meet housing needs in Rutland over the plan period.

Cllr Oliver Hemsley, Portfolio Holder for Growth, Trading Services and Resources, said:

“This is a great opportunity for local people to get involved and help shape future development in Rutland. One of the Council’s main aims is to help deliver sustainable growth in the county – growth that meets the needs of both current and future generations of residents while also protecting our rural environment. We are keen to hear feedback from residents and local businesses to ensure the Local Plan reflects the needs, expectations and views of our community.”
