Jeakins Weir has submitted detailed plans for the controversial development of a 96 home estate on Uppingham Road, Oakham.

Outline planning application was approved in August 2011 after a planning inspector overturned Rutland County Council's decision to refuse the application on the grounds that the development was in open countryside.

Jeakins Weir won the appeal after successfully arguing that Rutland County Council did not have enough new homes planned to meet targets for the next five years.

So far there have been two recorded objections on the planning application, which can be viewed here:-

"I object to the plan on the grounds it the houses are being built on open countryside and will spoil the nature of the town and Oakham. the government claim that people have the right, so let them prove it and put a stop to the building on green belt land around Oakham that the people don't want. The people of Rutland love the rural nature of the place they live, this development like the Hawksmead development will spoil the nature of Oakham forever and threaten the rural nature of the county. The Developers, the council and the government are spoiling Rutland for our children."

"Has this latest Uppingham Rd. development been properly thought out? I can think of many, reasons why it should not go ahead. Blind access into Uppingham Rd., strain on our already stretched parking facilities, further loss of otherwise picturesque countryside etc., the list goes on and on. However, the overriding problem that I see to allowing this developement, is the immense problem that it will create for our local surgery which is already so streached that it is no longer possible to book an appointment"
