New affordable homes and a regeneration scheme for Rudloe could be on the cards

Proposals are being explored to dispose of land in Rudloe in a bid to allow more affordable homes to be built in the rural location.

Wiltshire Council's cabinet resolved this week to declare the council's freehold land and property in Rudloe as surplus and for disposal.

The preferred option is to engage in negotiations with GreenSquare on transferring the freehold interest to create a regeneration scheme.

The negotiations with GreenSquare would involve homes, a regeneration scheme and consideration of other community requirements.

Currently the land has an empty community centre which has not been used for some time, open space, a vacant retail unit, car park and hardstanding.

Disposal of the land with GreenSquare would mean a lower return than selling on the open market however it would be in line with the council's commitment to longer term investment in much needed housing. The scheme would also bring regeneration benefits to the area.

Any applications for development on the land would go through the normal planning processes.
