Belvoir Hunt Stables, Woolsthorpe

Planit-X secured planning permission for the conversion of a dilapidated stables complex to 21 one and two bedroom properties, with communal garden and parking areas. The properties are managed by the Earl of Rutland and Dr Fleming’s Hospital Trust which was set up in the 1600s to provide low-cost housing for older local people.

The conversion involved the restoration of the former hunt stables- an important feature of the Woolsthorpe Conservation Area. The application was approved unanimously by the planning committee and had the support of the parish council. The development was completed in 2018.

The Duke of Rutland said

“The stables have been vacant for many years and I’m delighted that we can put them to such a good use. They were originally built at the beginning of the 20th Century and this scheme will benefit so many older people while conserving the buildings for many years to come.”

Nicholas Turner, Chairman of the Earl of Rutland and Dr Fleming’s Hospital Trust said:

“This project will help qualifying pensioners who cannot afford to heat or look after their home, and those in their 70s and 80s who are simply struggling to make ends meet.”
