Developer Larkfleet is seeking a Judicial Review of the Uppingham Neighbourhood Plan arguing that, under existing planning law, it cannot allocate sites for housing. The move follows a 92% vote in favour of the Plan by the Uppingham community on July 10th 2014.

After Uppingham Town Council was named an 'Interested Party' in the legal action, the Council is to meet in emergency session on Wednesday July 16th 2014 to consider its response.
