Witney Town Council is currently exploring options with regard to the future of Langdale Hall. Previously, under sale contract, purchasers failed to obtain the planning permission they were seeking, which would have retained and improved the existing building. As a result the purchasers have indicated they do not wish to proceed.
The former Drill Hall was put on the open market in July 2014 through property agents Bidwells. In November 2014 an unconditional offer was accepted from Iceford Ltd, trading as Neptune Homes, a bespoke home improvements company which would have brought significant benefits to the town.
Sharon Groth Town Clerk, said;
“It is a shame that an application to register the hall as an Asset of Community Value delayed the proceedings by 6 months, and subsequently changed the original offer to that reliant on Neptune Homes getting planning permission. However, the Town Council is now able to use this opportunity to re-evaluate the needs of a growing town, especially in light of the feedback received from the Corporate Plan survey carried out earlier in the year.”
