Volunteers Needed – Bonfire Night Sunday 5th November 2017

The Parish Council Bonfire Night Working Group are now finalizing the arrangements for Bonfire Night 2017. The event will take place on Sunday 5th Nov 17 on the Oval. ‘Doors’ will open at 6pm and the bonfire will be lit at around 6.10pm and fireworks will commence around 6.30 pm. There will be a competition for the best ‘Guy’ and drinks and hot refreshments will be available at very reasonable prices. To make the event a success we need to raise some £2,500 on the night through collections and sales.

We are now looking for volunteers to assist with Stewarding, Bucket Collections, Management of Fireworks and Catering support. We would be most grateful for any offers of assistance to ensure that the event can be both safe and successful. If you can help please call:

Public Meeting – The Future of St George’s Barracks – Thursday 26th October 2017

There will be a public meeting in the School Hall on Thursday 26th Oct 17 at 7PM to discuss the proposals for the future development of St George’s Barracks. The meeting will be addressed by Helen Briggs, Chief Executive of Rutland County Council who will discuss the outline proposal  and explain how the proposed Partnership with MoD will work.

This is an opportunity to hear at first hand what is proposed and to address the Chief Executive. This initiative will have a significant impact on the village over the next 20 years and I do hope that as many as possible will take the opportunity to hear what is planned and to have an opportunity to help shape the future of the Barracks site, a significant portion of which currently lies within the village boundary.

Future of St George’s Barracks

On 25th Sep Cllrs Cummings and Smith attended a briefing held jointly by Rutland County Council and the Ministry of Defence (MoD). The aim of the meeting was to outline how the County Council and MoD intended to work in Partnership to identify the most appropriate future use of the site in line with the Councils objectives and requirements and to secure the best possible outcome for St George’s site, local communities and the wider county.

The key points raised by the Chief Executive in her introduction were:

  • The MoD decided last year that St George’s Barracks would close by 2021 – this decision at present remains extant.
  • Since then MoD and RCC have been in active discussions about the possibility of developing a Private/Private Partnership designed to maximize the potential for the site.
  • The site was a 300 Hectare Brownfield site with enormous potential in a most favorable position close to A1 / A47, and Rutland Water.

CE RCC identified the shared vision that was being developed. The intent was to create:

  • A new ‘Garden village’, – the new village would be well-designed, built to a high quality and attractive to meet local housing needs, including affordable housing.
  • A business enterprise zone
  • Leisure and recreation facilities
  • Minerals extraction

She indicated that this would be a long term project with phased development over 10-15 years. With supporting infrastructure, including roads, Utilities, Broadband etc being put in place prior to development.

The Parish Council have indicated their wish to work closely with MoD and to be able to represent the views of the villagers of North Luffenham. Helen Briggs, the Chief Executive has agreed to come to North Luffenham to present the Council’s vision to the village. Plans are being drawn up to hold this meeting on 25th or 26th October. Further details will be published in due course.

A Question and Answer brief prepared by Rutland County Council is attached.

Oval Tree Inspection

The Parish Council has commissioned Rutland County Council to survey all of the trees on the Oval to review their health and ensure the safety of users of the Oval and adjacent householders.

Over the past few days the Forestry Officer from Rutland County Council has inspected all the trees on the Oval – we await his report which will be published on line in due course.

Rutland Local Plan Review – Parish Council Response

Rutland County Council are reviewing the Local Plan in order to extend the plan period to 2036 and to provide for any additional new housing, employment or other development that may be needed over the extended plan period.

Details of the Draft Local Plan can be found at:  https://www.rutland.gov.uk/my-services/planning-and-building-control/planning/planning-policy/local-plan-review/

As Chair of the Parish Council I have drafted a response which has been circulated to all Councillors for comment. Comments received have been incorporated into our response, which is attached for residents information:

Good News – Oval Play Equipment

From Paul Cummings: PC Chairman:

The Parish Council have been advised that over the next week 3 new pieces of play equipment will be installed on The Oval. These are a Cradle Swing, a Zip Wire and a Climbing frame.

Please note that the equipment should not be used until all necessary safety checks have been completed as part of the commissioning process.

This will complete Phase 1 of the process of modernising and improving play facilities on the Oval. Much more is to be done and we are looking for volunteers to join a working group to develop ideas for the improvement of the play area.  

I am thrilled that the new equipment is now being installed and would wish to thank Cllr Steve Marson for his hard work in getting us this far – many thanks indeed.

Oval Play Equipment – Update

We have recently received confirmation from Rutland County Council authorising the installation of the 3 new pieces of Oval equipment and the order has been placed with our chosen supplier.

The likely installation date is some time in September which isn’t ideal given that it won’t be in place for the remaining School holidays. We have asked the supplier to give us priority in the event of other work being delayed. As a reminder the equipment is a zip-wire, cradle swing and climbing frame.

 We have also started the process of gaining quotes for slightly smaller goalposts to replace the adult sized versions that are currently in a very poor state of repair and are largely unsuitable for children to use due to their height.  

We intend to redecorate all of the current equipment that is in place too, with quotes currently being obtained for this work.
