Rutland’s New Local Plan – Planning for Rutland’s Future

Rutland County Council are consulting on the Preferred Options (Regulation 18) stage for the new Local Plan from Monday 13th November until it closes at 4pm Monday 8th January 2024.  This is the second stage of public consultation for the preparation of the new Rutland Local Plan. 

The Local Plan covers the period 2021-2041 and will, when adopted, set out policies and proposals for future development in Rutland.

The easiest way to comment is via the online consultation portal. By using the portal, you will be able to save draft responses and come back to them later. It also enables easy access for future consultations. In addition, comments made by other people can now be viewed on the system once they’ve been made live rather than wait until after consultation has closed and the Consultation Statement has been published.

The new Local Plan web page includes more detailed information on how to submit comments in the Preferred Options consultation

For any further enquiries please email or call the Council’s customer services team on 01572 722 577 who will arrange for a member of the Local Plan team to contact you to provide you with a response.

Langham Parish Council's main concern is with the proposal to use car park 3 of the Rutland County Showground for "High Quality office and Employment". This adjoins the Green Seperation Zone (GSZ)  that stops development encroaching on Langham from Oakham and Barleythorpe and we will be commenting on this proposal and any others we think we need to. This is your only opportunity to make YOUR OWN VIEWS known to Rutland County Council on any aspects of the local plan.
