A new website to help inform community groups around the country preparing neighbourhood and town/village plans has been created in Rutland. The site lists many of the final and interim working documents prepared by the Uppingham community in creating its own forward looking plans.

Commenting on the initiative a spokesperson said, "The site is very simple in its construct and has intention of being a learning tool to allow other communities to learn from Uppingham experiences and deliberations.  Interim and superceded versions of the documents are listed and have been made accessible to everyone interested. Hopefully new groups will see what changes were thought appropriate/necessary over time and what made the final versions. From time to time other tips and supporting links will be added to the site together with surveys and other working tools". See www.uppinghamneighbourhoodplan.info
