RCT Council have declared the following Council properties surplus to their needs.  Prior to putting these properties on the open market, we would like to explore with community and voluntary organisations across RCT whether these buildings can be utilised as “Assets of Community Value” and deliver services which meet the need of the broader community and contributes to and addresses the key priorities laid out in RCT Council’s Single Integrated Plan “Delivering Change”, Social Services & Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 and Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.  

We will provide a "30 day Window of Opportunity" for any community groups wishing to submit an initial expression of interest for the potential leasehold transfer of these buildings for community use.

Subject to your expression of interest you will then have up to 12 weeks to provide a fully costed Business Plan which will need to evidence that your proposals meets the needs of the community and are both viable and sustainable.

NB. The 30 Day Window of Opportunity ensures equity of opportunity and fairness to all community groups who may wish to declare an interest.

If you wish to submit an initial Expression of Interest for the following buildings please contact Debra Hanney, RCT County Borough Council, Corporate Estates, Valleys Innovation Centre, Abercynon, RCT, CF45 4SN or email to RCTtogether@rctcbc.gov.uk before the closing deadline. If you require any further information or support to progress your proposals, please telephone Debra Hanney on 01443 744517 or 07880 044520 who will be able to advise and signpost to appropriate support agencies.
