altFollowing on from a grant aided feasibility study to assess the viability of building up to 10 affordable homes in Uppingham for the under 35s, community partnership Uppingham First has submitted a bid for government funding to create a new housing trust which will build and manage affordable homes in Uppingham.  

The Community Housing Fund has substantial grants on offer to support such bids, with the option of such new trusts also becoming registered providers  of housing and managing them on a day to day basis. If secured, the grant will cover the cost of setting up the new trust and preparing  a proposal for up to 10 new homes on the Badley Orchard site. The site has been donated by the Badley family to support the initiative.

The partnership should hear by March 2019 whether the bid has been successful.

altFollowing early work with the Design Council (pictured left is Uppingham N Plan Chair Cllr Edward Baines at their offices in London) when preparing Uppingham's Neighbourhood and Town Centre Plans, an Uppingham group is being considered for inclusion as a case study in a new national initiative to create a 'design toolkit' for future neighbourhood planning practitioners.

Wishing to work in a collaborative way for the future with developers, businesses, schools  and other interested parties, community partnership Uppingham First developed a basis for regular dialogue and information sharing by bringing together the Uppingham Vanguard Board.

The Uppingham Vanguard Board was created at the suggestion of a government advisor who was impressed by the town’s forward looking agenda. Its purpose is to share information with, and encourage collective debate between, organisations involved in the operation and forward development of Uppingham as an exemplar market town. The Board meets twice a year.
