Rutland County Council seeks views on increasing size of conservation area in Ketton

Rutland County Council is inviting people to comment on proposals to increase the size of a conservation area in the village of Ketton.

Conservation areas are defined as areas of special or architectural interest and are given special protections under the Listed Buildings and Conservation areas Act.

Following a review of Ketton Conservation Area, the Council has produced a draft appraisal document that sets out the special interest of the conservation area and suggests a number of ways to further enhance the space.

·To extend the conservation area to include the former railway station building, Station Road

·To extend the conservation area to include ‘The Paddock’ on Hunts Lane
