THE site of the former Bodlondeb was initially placed on the market by Ceredigion County Council after the provision of residential care and all other services at Bodlondeb were discontinued in 2018.
Priority was given to buyers intending on using the site to improve and facilitate social care or housing needs in Ceredigion, before being placed on the open market.
The Board of Tai Wales & West Housing have now completed the sale agreement on the property.
Councillor Bryan Davies, Leader of Ceredigion County Council, said: “We look forward to this building having a new lease of life. After exhausting all avenues to sell the former care home, it was agreed to sell the site on the open market. A sale has now been agreed with Tai Wales & West Housing, and we are pleased that the site will be brought back into use. This supports many of the Council’s corporate priorities including creating caring and healthy communities.”
Commenting on the development, Councillor Alun Williams, Cabinet Member for Through Age Wellbeing, said: “We are very pleased to complete this sale to a respected housing association which will bring an important building back into use. The money from the sale will help us to improve our social care provision throughout the county, particularly at Hafan y Waun care home which has recently come into the Council’s possession, along with other care locations in the county.”
The building is situated in Penparcau, which is represented by Councillor Carl Worrall. He added: “Now the sale of Bodlondeb has been completed I’m looking forward to working with Tai Wales & West and hope they will use the area for our older residents.”
Capital receipt from this sale will be used to invest in social care infrastructure in Ceredigion, including for improvements at Hafan y Waun.
