Recommendations

EVOLVING MASTERPLAN

The draft High-Level Masterplan setting out how St George’s Barracks could be developed after the army leaves in 2020/21 was published in May 2018. Local residents, community groups and other interested bodies were then asked to share their views on the draft proposals as part of an informal consultation.

Feedback received during the informal consultation period has since been reviewed and considered alongside the MOD’s requirements for redeveloping of the site. The result is a series of more than 40 recommendations to guide changes to the evolving Masterplan – labelled ‘evolving’ because we recognise there are still questions we need to answer and additional changes to be made based on further studies, viability assessments and feasibility work.

Now that the Partnership has reviewed the feedback and has a comprehensive set of recommendations in place, these will be used to inform the refinement of the evolving Masterplan.

An updated version of the evolving Masterplan is due to be presented to Rutland County Council’s Cabinet and Full Council in November, together with a bid for potential funding to support the delivery of key infrastructure.
