St George's barracks plans a step closer, but still a long way to go

Councillors last night agreed the Rutland Local Plan

Plans for more than 2 thousand houses at the St Georges Barracks site near North Luffenham have cleared another hurdle, although it's being stressed there's still a long way to go.

A meeting last night approved Rutland's draft local plan which sets out proposals for development over the next 15 years particularly around housing.

However consultations on the document will now take place.

The plans for St Georges have proved controversial with many campaigners claiming the scheme is too big for the area.
