I have received a few enquiries on why the council is selling Hemwood Dell in Dedworth.
The Dell is not owned by the council. RBWM is not selling this site.
The Dell is “adopted” by the Royal Borough as highway. It’s maintained as a highway so residents are able to walk through it and although it comes up for sale from time to time there is no question of permission being granted to build anything on it.
Cllr Malcolm Alexander and I have proposed a Bluebell Walk from the Dell right through to Castle Farm Spinney. This project will not be affected by any sale.
