Brynards Hill Country Park
Following a recent meeting between Royal Wootton Bassett Town Council and Wain Homes Severn Valley Ltd, the council received a written offer from Wain Homes Severn Valley Ltd on the 26th January 2023, about the transfer of ownership of the Country Park on Brynards Hill to Royal Wootton Bassett Town Council.
At the Full Council meeting on Thursday 9th February 2023, the offer was discussed and the Council confirmed interest in taking ownership of the Country Park.
The Council made it very clear that any discussions or agreement about the Country Park with Wain Homes Severn Valley Ltd does not indicate any support to the ongoing planning application for further development on part of that site, and the appeal process with Wiltshire Council that starts on the 28th March 2023.
The Council agreed to delegate authority to Chief Officer, Mark Hopkins, to progress discussions with Wain Homes Severn Valley Ltd and agree Heads of Terms with a view to a decision at a future Full Council meeting, which is anticipated to be once the outcome of the appeal process is known.
