Road Closures in & around Morcott

The Parish Clerk has sent notifications from RCC about two temporary closures.

30 & 31 JulyMount Pleasant Road: footway work is being undertaken up Mount Pleasant road over two days, so it will be closed from the High Street up to Back Lane.

6 August – Wing Road & The Cockpit: patching work for one day, with the road closed from the junction of Willoughby Road – there are two separate orders for this date, and basically both a section of Wing Road AND the Cockpit are to have some ‘patching’ done on the same day.

As usual, the closure orders end with ‘reasonable facilities will be provided to allow access to adjacent premises while the work is being carried out.’

Clive Pitts from Lyndon lost his signet ring on 5 July 2020, while cycling. His route went through Pilton and Morcott, down the Seaton Road a bit, then to Barrowden and down to Turtle Bridge, then home to Lyndon via South Luffenham – by tracks and road.

Launch of Fight4Rutland – campaign group

Fight4Rutland (F4R) is a local campaign group of Rutlanders dedicated to achieving the best for Rutland and Rutlanders in every way and opposes the disastrous over-development planned for St George’s Barracks (SGB). “Over 2,300 houses slap bang in between North Luffenham, Edith Weston and Normanton ​and next to Rutland Water, in a Local Plan seemingly driven entirely by the MOD and Rutland County Council (RCC) in the face of widespread opposition from Rutlanders.”

F4R is campaigning for a reasonable plan that would benefit local communities, wildlife and tourism instead of  damaging this by creating a dormitory town of 2,3​00 plus houses.  It is also concerned about RCC’s increasingly anti-democratic position, refusing to currently allow public presentation of deputations or questions, ​(zoom attendance is allowed but no other participation) and generally appearing to be trying to force the development through at any cost and regardless of the changing socio-economic profile of the UK, including Rutland, following the Covid-19 crisis.

Herewith the links to the group’s website https://fight4rutland.org/

FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/Fight-4-Rutland-109059604199382

Twitter feed https://mobile.twitter.com/Fight4Rutland

All will be regularly and frequently updated as the fight for Rutland progresses.
