 The death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Following the sad news of the death of Queen Elizabeth ll we are now in a period of public grief and national mourning.  The Parish Council is still waiting to hear exactly how public protocol will be applied at this time

However, this is to let you know that all formal meetings until after the Queen’s funeral are to be postponed. This means that our expected meeting on Monday 19th September will not now take place. While as a council, we would wish to show proper respect, it is the case that any decision made during a period of mourning may be subject to legal challenge.

I will keep you informed about when the council is next able to meet formally.

Neighbourhood Plan Consultation 23rd August – 4th October

As you will be aware the North Luffenham Neighbourhood Plan Working Group of the Parish Council have been developing the Neighbourhood Plan document, Planning Policies and background evidence for the North Luffenham Neighbourhood Plan.

The Plan and Policies are now at the point where the residents of the Parish have the opportunity to review and comment on the draft (the official status is “Pre Submission”) plan.

You should have received details about the plan, and the consultation, via a leaflet drop.

The consultation period starts Tuesday 23rd August, and you can find the details of the consultation period, a downloadable copy of the draft plan, along with supporting documents on the Neighbourhood Plan page on the web site.

There is also a link to the online form for you to enter your views

https://northluffenham.com/nlpc/neighbourhood-plan/

This is your chance to provide feedback, and influence the plan. Once this consultation period completes, Rutland County Council will run a wider review, however this will be mainly around the legalities and background evidence for the plan – they will not comment on the actual planning policies in the plan, unless there are errors or unenforceable statements included in the text.

Please take this opportunity to provide your input. The Plan will be part of the decision making process for all planning applications submitted in North Luffenham Parish until 2036, and so it is very important that it accurately reflects the overall views of the residents.

North Luffenham Draft Neighbourhood Plan

The Draft Neighbourhood Plan has been developed by North Luffenham Parish Council. The next stage of the process is a formal, six week, consultation on the draft plan.

The consultation period will run from 23rd August to 4th October 2022

This is the opportunity for villagers and other stakeholders to comment on the overall plan, and specifically on the planning policies included in the plan.

Please note the consultation goes live on the website on the 23rd August.

New Local Plan: Issue and Options Consultation

It is important that local communities respond to this consultation because it is an opportunity for you to have a voice in the development of the new Local Plan for Rutland.

North Luffenham Parish Council has approved a guide to the important questions and advice on responses to this consultation. Hopefuly residents will find it useful to guide them through a complex document which is on the Rutland County Council Website.

Vandalism to Chater Bridge : again

There has been further damage to the footbridge on the footpath from the Church to the Pilton Rail Bridge on Glebe Road. It is similar to the previous damage and one can only assume it is wanton vandalism.

If you do see any antisocial behaviour please contact the police. If you have information that might be helpful our beat officer, PC Icke, may be contacted by email: Peter.Icke@leics.police.uk
