The  next meeting of the Uppingham Neighbourhood Forum is to consider the establishment of a community park or wood on land off the Ayston Road near the A47 roundabout. The site is currently owned by Larkfleet Homes who have submitted a planning application to build homes there in contravention of the Uppingham Neighbourhood Plan.

Commenting on the idea Neighbourhood Forum Coordinator Ron Simpson said, "The Forum has in mind urging the Town Council to pursue a Neighbourhood Development Order which will designate the site as community green space. This will protect the current green boundary along the A47. Residents do not want to see any more house building in this area". 

A date for the Forum meeting is set to be fixed this week.
