Uppingham First has been invited to be part of a new neighbourhood planning ‘design’ initiative led by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and national community charity Locality.

A new toolkit is to be prepared that will help groups preparing Neighbourhood Plans to define and promote good design.   This will allow them to influence the form of new development and positively plan for change, whilst preserving community values. 

The initiative will take the form of two multidisciplinary workshops, the first of which is to be hosted by AECOM in London. AECOM is a global network of experts working with clients, communities and peers to develop and implement innovative solutions to a wide range of design challenges.

altUppingham First and its constituent Neighbourhood and Business Forums have thanked the local community for all their support for the town during 2018 and wished the entire community all the very best for 2019.

Pictured is Uppingham First Chairman Robert Wills who, in the Uppingham First December 2018 Business Newsletter distributed to local traders at the end of the year, has also expressed his best wishes to local traders for a successful 2019 and thanked them for the vital role they play in the sustainability of Uppingham.

Uppingham town centre and its business zones benefit from a unique blend of locally owned retail, service & manufacturing outlets and leading brands. Visitors praise the character of the town's high street and its heritage offer. Private investment in the high street and market place  has been significant. The town's outstanding mix of antique, arts, books and creative crafts galleries and shops is now reflected in a new online retailer trail complete with downloadable map.

The introduction of a five day a week local hopper bus service operated by volunteers (timetable here) has helped footfall, with plans for an extension of the service to support local villages up for debate in 2019. A trial of an Amazon style home delivery service for  the housebound using the hopper (HopShop) supported by good neighbour scheme UppWatch is also under consideration. Due to be launched in 2019 is a new online portal for Uppingham set to become the first port of call for virtual visitors to the town and local  residents wishing to access online services.
