North Luffenham Parish Council (Trustee) meeting: 4th December 2017

The next meeting of North Luffenham Parish Council (as Trustee for The Oval and Allotment Field) will be on Monday, 4th December 2017, immediately following the Parish Council meeting in the Community Centre. The Agenda and associated paper are listed below.

Dog Fouling

With the dark mornings and evenings there appears to be a rash of dog fouling on the pavements of Digby Drive, Chapel Lane, Church Street and Lyndon Road. Please be a responsible dog owner and clear up after your pet. If walking your dog in the dark please  keep your dog on a lead and carry a torch – always carry bags and ensure that any mess is cleared up immediately. Many thanks.

St George’s Barracks Development – Your View

As previously published, the Parish Council has created a Working Group, whose role will be to work with the Village to identify the key concerns relating to the proposed St George’s Barracks Development. The Group will advise the Parish Council and help to deliver research and feedback. The Group will provide a conduit to Rutland County Council and seek to influence the Project Board’s thinking. The PC Members of the Group are Paul Cummings, Tim Smith and Pete Burrows. Tim Collins has agreed to join the group as an advisor and lead on environmental matters.

To let us properly gauge opinion, it is proposed to hold a public meeting on 7th December at 7.30pm in the Village Church, to enable the Parish Council to understand concerns and aspirations regarding the development of the site. The meeting will also provide an opportunity to identify villagers willing to join the working group to assist in their work.

St George’s Barracks Redevelopment

Over 150 people crammed in to the School Hall last evening, 26 Oct 17 to hear Helen Briggs, (CE Rutland County Council) present on the outline proposal for redevelopment of St George’s Barracks.

The presentation was very clear, and though many inevitably felt unhappy with the proposals to build a new ‘Garden Village’ which could be somewhere in the order of new 3,000 homes so very close to both North Luffenham and Edith Weston, it was good to be told in broad detail what was planned and how the project would be run. The top level ‘Master planning’ for the project will begin early in the New Year and the combined North Luffenham and Edith Weston Parish Council team will strive hard to ensure that our voice is heard and that the villages are kept informed of progress throughout.

Thank you to all that attended the meeting and for the excellent and very clear questions that were put to CE RCC. We will add a copy of Helen’s Presentation to the site as soon as it is available. I have attached the initial Question and Answer Brief that was published last month.
