I am posting this notice as a local Councillor to advise anyone thinking of bidding for this land at auction on Thursday 26th May that the reason the guide price is £20,000 is that it has no value as building land.
The land is Adopted Highway and so is run and maintained by the council. Find out more here…
It has many legal protections on it which would make it impossible to get planning permission on the land.
With a number of plots being sold at auction the local residents are in the process of setting up a local Community Land Trust through which plots will be purchased for the long term benefit of the community.
If you would like to know more about the Community Land Trust or are in the enviable position that you’d be willing to make a contribution to future land purchases, to minimise the stress on local residents, then please email me Cllr.Davey@rbwm.gov.uk and I will forward your details to the right people.
