Ceredigion Council - offer Bodlondeb to the People of Penparcau

Ceredigion Council - offer Bodlondeb to the People of Penparcau

Ceredigion Council should offer the Bodlondeb building and site to the Penparcau and Aberystwyth Community for community and public use. Now that the council have decided to close Aberystwyth's much loved Bodlondeb Residential Care Home in Penparcau, they should offer the building and site to the local community so that it can be developed for elderly residents and other members of the Penparcau and Aberystwyth community.

Why is this important?

The Bodlondeb Residential Home is a much loved home for the elderly members of the community, and as a publically owned building it belongs to the people of Ceredigion. Its redevelopment or sale needs to bring benefit to the local community. However, the council may be planning to allow a redevelopment of Bodlondeb that is not appropriate or suitable in this location. But if the building is offered to the community then it can continue to be a positive asset for the neighbourhood's elderly population and for families and younger people. There are many ways the building could be used, for example elderly services, a day centre, clinics, sensory spaces for young people with autism, childcare, studio and maker and start up business spaces, training and meeting spaces, please feel free to add your suggestions in the comments when you sign the petition!

How it will be delivered

We will deliver the petition by hand and by email.

Reasons for signing

  • Given the disgraceful decision to close the building as a wonderful home for the local community the least the County Council can do is ensure the facility remains of service to the public and under local control.
  • So important that we keep this building for the people of Penparcau and in public and community use.
