Special Full Council Meeting to consider next stage for Local Plan

Rutland County Council will hold a Special Full Council meeting next week on Wednesday 1st September at 7.00pm to determine if Rutland’s Draft Local Plan should be withdrawn from examination.

The meeting will be held at the Rutland Showground but because of restrictions members of the public who wish to attend will be limited to 60 people.

It makes a difference if County Coucillors are aware that a large number of the public are listening into the deabte and there will be a live audiostream:

Woodland Walk

NLPC approved the extension of the walk so that it came out at the top of Pinfold Land near the junction with the Edith Weston Rd. some time ago. Unfrotunately there have been delays in getting a contractor to do the required fencing.

Walkers are kindly requested to keep to the present walkway and not walk across the top of the field that is close to Geoff Sewell Close and the Edith Weston Rd..
