Uppingham has hosted a number of meetings to consider the draft Rutland Local Plan, currently out to public consultation. 

The Rutland Branch of the Council for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE) met in the historic Club Room of The Falcon Hotel for over 5 hours to consider its response to the plan under the chairmanship of local Rotarian Malcolm Touchin. Present was Branch President, the Lord Lieutenant, Dr Laurence Howard.

Representatives of twenty one parishes met in the magnificent Oak Room of the hotel last week to consider their concerns over the plan. Items discussed included the spatial strategy for development and its impact on small villages, future strategy on neighbourhood planning and a number of inequalities in the plan. 

Uppingham Neighbourhood Forum and its partner Uppingham Business Forum have also considered their views on the document. Both Forums are represented on the Board of Community Partnership Uppingham First which met this week  and approved a written response to the draft plan this week informed by the recently updated Uppingham Town Centre & Business Zones Plan. Of particular concern are the draft Rutland Local Plan's proposals to limit the future economic development of Uppingham in deference to Oakham.
