Dated 13th September 2017
with partners to progress stalled Randlay development site.
Talks have taken place to help unblock a stalled private development
site in Randlay.
The site of the former shops and community centre in Randlay remains
undeveloped since a wider regeneration scheme which saw Telford & Wrekin
Council, work with Hollinswood & Randlay Parish Council, to build new shops
and a new community centre
The landowner had originally planned to build a private care home on the
site, however this scheme stalled due to a lack of private funding.
Council’s Leader Cllr Shaun Davies, officers and the Chairman of the
Parish Council have now met to find ways to kickstart development on this site.
In the short term, the Council is working with the landowner/developer
to make the site safer and tidier following concerns from local residents,
while working with the landowner to look at viable options for future development
to bring this site back into use as soon as possible
Cllr Davies said: “The Council extensively redeveloped Randlay’s centre
with new shops and a community centre that has been very well received.
“However this site in Randlay centre originally planned for a care home
and houses has remained undeveloped because it has not secured private funding
“All the partners are fully committed to find a new development use for
the site as quickly as possible and a number of possible options are now being
“We fully appreciate local concerns that the site remains undeveloped
and we have taken steps to tidy it in the short term and we will keep people
informed as matters progress.”
Councillor Mrs Sheenagh Unwin, Chairman of Hollinswood & Randlay
Parish Council, said “We welcome the commitment from Telford & Wrekin
Council and the landowner / developer to progress, as soon as possible, future
development on the site and in the meantime we appreciate their help to keep
the site safer and tidier”.
