Uppingham Neighbourhood Plan Review
Call for Sites
Local developers, land owners, developers, councils and others are being asked to submit details of potential development sites for consideration in the Refreshed Neighbourhood Plan in Uppingham.
The "Call for Sites" is part of a review of the Town Council's Neighbourhood Plan. The existing Neighbourhood Plan for the period up to 2026 will be reviewed and extended to cover the next 10 year period up to 2036. The review is being undertaken in order to comply with national planning guidance and to meet the future needs for additional new housing, employment and other development over the extended period.
The Town Council is particularly looking to find sites for new housing, affordable housing, employment and retail uses in Uppingham that would be suitable to allocate for development in the refreshed Neighbourhood Plan.
Any sites submitted to the Town Council will be assessed according to their compliance with Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plan policies and their suitability for development.
It should be noted that if a site is put forward to the Town Council, this does not imply that it will automatically be included as an allocation in the Neighbourhood Plan. Only those sites that are needed to meet requirements and which meet the criteria in terms of site size, location and suitability are likely to be allocated in the Neighbourhood Plan.
The sites put forward and allocated will be subject to further consultation through a Draft Neighbourhood Plan which is to be published for consultation later in 2021.
Site details should be submitted to the Town Council by Thursday 31st December 2020 by way of letter or email.
