Wheldrake Guide centre move
We reported in April that the former elderly person’s home at Grove House was being sold by the Council. The building has been empty for some time.
No sale has gone through and now a bid is being made to list the buildings under the Community Right to Bid legislation. The move follows a similar initiative last month involving a number of pubs and other properties (which were subsequently added to the list).
The request will be considered at a meeting taking place on 15th August. Any listing would mean that residents would have 6 months in which to raise the asking price for the site.
In this case – as it is in a prime residential area – the price may match the £3 million recently paid for another Council home at Oliver House
A community group has also expressed an interest in bidding for White Rose House in Wheldrake which is currently used as a Girl Guiding centre.
