Walnut Buildings, Radstock
Curo are looking to build new, high-quality homes through the redevelopment of the Walnut Buildings site in Radstock, North East Somerset.
Why redevelop Walnut Buildings?
Walnut Buildings consisted of a group of four blocks (32 flats) in Radstock, North East Somerset.
In 2019, as part of a planned programme of major improvements at Walnut Buildings, Curo carried out a number of detailed surveys and inspections to understand the condition of each of the four blocks of flats.
The decision to demolish came in November 2020, after in-depth surveys revealed that the type of construction would make it very difficult to refurbish the buildings to an acceptable standard.
Curo have worked with Bath & North East Somerset Council and residents at Walnut Buildings in 2019 and 2020 to find them new homes in the local area. All residents have moved to suitable accommodation, with the last few households moving out in September 2020.
What happens next at Walnut Buildings?
The buildings have now been fully demolished.
We ran our first public consultation between 29th March and 26th April 2021 to gather views from the local community about the future of the site.
Your feedback is helping us design development proposals for the site which we'll be able to share with local residents in autumn this year.
