And there is a strong moral argument:

  • The land was originally compulsorily purchased from local landowners to support the war effort - the intention was for it to be returned after hostilities ended.
  • Rutland has long supported, and welcomed, the military with 2 major bases in the County
  • Why should the Ministry of Defence be allowed to damage Rutland to obtain
    maximum value for St George’s Barracks, solely for their benefit?

St George’s Barracks is not necessary to meet Rutland’s housing need

The Plan to build a new town at St George’s Barracks needs to be reviewed

A new town at St George’s Barracks will not benefit Rutland businesses financially

Rutland County Council have not listened to Rutlanders

St George’s Barracks risks not being a sustainable development
