Oakham Town Centre

Alan welcomes halt to Oakham town centre project

I am very pleased that Rutland County Council has listened to the strength of local feeling expressed by a large number of people and that they will now spend 2018 looking again carefully at all options for improvements to Oakham Town Centre. It is vital that any future changes are made with the agreement of those who live and work in Oakham and the surrounding area, and that the town is consistent with the rural character of Rutland.

I welcome the clarity of the Council’s statement and look forward to working with its new leader in due course.
