At the auction held on Monday 17 July in London the 14 empty lock-up garages between Bellfield and Doctor’s Close sold for £126,000 to an unknown buyer. The guide price was £30,000.
Orbit Housing,who took over responsibility for the former Stratford District Council housing stock from the South Warwickshire Housing Association,have been selling off similar sites all over the County.
Last week’s Stratford Herald confirms that a clawback clause means SDC may benefit from the sale of the 19 sites by as much as £1million. SDC,therefore,stands to make £63,000 from this sale.
Tanworth Parish Council made several approaches through our local District Councillor and our MP to see if the important site –the last open space at the centre of the village –could be secured in the public interest but was rebuffed at every attempt.
