Ruddington Development Design Guide ‘Village Walks’ – Volunteers Needed! 

Are you interested In preserving the look and feel of Ruddington as a Village? The Ruddington Neighbourhood Plan Project team (RNP) are calling for volunteer residents to join them on the next stage of the RNP – The Design Guide.

The Design Guide is being developed as part of the Neighbourhood Plan but can also be used as a standalone document and carries weight in local decision making relating to development proposals. The first stage of Design Guide creation is carrying out what are known as ‘Walkovers’ – whereby Project Team members, consultants and members of the public walk around the key areas of the village, discussing and identifying key features of the villagescape and landscape that contribute to Ruddington’s character.

The Village Walks will take place in the early evening over two dates. One focussing on small scale development and the other on large scale developments.

To register your interest…

Anyone living in Ruddington is welcome to register their interest in joining the walk, and families are welcome to bring children along! No experience or specific knowledge is required. Places will be granted on a first come first serve basis, so don’t delay!  Please ensure you are available on the given dates and times before registering.

Tuesday 20th August 6.30pm
Small Development Village Walk

Thursday 22nd August 6.30pm
Large Development Walk

Please email with your name, contact details, the ward you live in and which walk you would prefer to join. Registration closes Wednesday 14th August

Both walks will start at St Peter’s Rooms where welcome refreshments will be served and finish at approximately 8.30pm. Please note that there will be a fair amount of walking required, albeit it will be at a slow place with plenty of stops.


  • I am interested in joining the Thursday 22nd August Walk

  • Would be very interested in taking part but limited mobility means walking long distances is prohibitive. Is there any chance you could provide a map so that I can gauge if it is possible to take part? Would you be willing on taking comments if not on the walk? Many thanks.
