Change is on the agenda at Uppingham Town Council this week with local man Neil Wedge taking over the role of Town Clerk and Principal Adviser to the Council and a number of new candidates putting themselves forward to invigorate the Council in the May 2015 elections.

Commenting on the imminent changes, Neighbourhood Forum Coordinator and Business Forum Chair Ron Simpson said, "The future is bright for Uppingham. The town is now in a strong position with competent professional and political leadership, huge aspirations and a High Street approaching 100% occupancy. I look forward to even stronger partnership working in 2015/16. Together the new Town Council, the Neighbourhood Forum and the Uppingham First Community Partnership can achieve great things.  Our Neighbourhood Plan and emerging Town Centre and Business Zones Plan set a course for us to follow. If Rutland is the top rural county to live in (Halifax Survey 2015), surely Uppingham is the jewel in its crown".

Uppingham is to host a major regional shopping event this  summer organised by the innovative 'Women in the High Street' network. The event has been named, 'The Big Shop'. 

Many of the skills and talents represented in the town will be on show with a programme of special events set within shops and galleries to entice shoppers to visit the town and experience its creativity and commercial talent. Visitors will be able to make use of provided child care facilities to enable them to view skilled craftsmen and craftswomen at work and perhaps participate in a wide range of art and craft workshops running throughout the day. Special Big Shop menus will tempt visitors to take regular breaks and chill out in the town.  Special prices will be available on some goods. 

As an extra enticement  to 'spend', £500 of receipts taken on the day will be refunded to shoppers in a public draw by a mystery guest of deposited receipts. A full programme of activities will be published in June.  If successful, the event could become part of the annual calendar.

Following on from informative research by the University of Leicester undertaken for the town's Heritage Trail Group, the Task Group preparing the Uppingham Town Centre and Business Zones Plan has resolved to prepare a Neighbourhood Development Order (NDO) for a site to the north of the town.

The site is believed to be of heritage and scientific interest and is thought ideal for the creation of a heritage and visitor centre linked to the town's footpaths, heritage trail and town centre.

The site is currently the subject of a housing planning application by controversial developer Larkfleet. The planning application must fail to enable an NDO to proceed.
