Saturday 1st April 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Rutland regaining its status as an independent county and the formation of Rutland County Council as a unitary authority. Rutland was a district of Leicestershire from 1974 until 1997, regaining its independent status only after a long-running campaign by local councillors, residents and communities.
