A former pub car park in Bramley has been sold off by cash-strapped Leeds City Council, auctioneers have revealed.

The car park area at the former Globe pub in Broad Lane went for £179,000 at an auction run by Pugh.

As reported by WLD in February, a council document suggested the site could accommodate a couple of new houses.

The site is owned by the council and had been let to the pub, which is now a funeral directors.

The car park in Bramley was owned by Leeds council and has been sold.

The council report said: “Disposal of this site would divest the council of ownership and maintenance costs and would generate a capital receipt to help support a wide variety of projects.

“Given the potential alternative use, it is considered the best consideration that could be obtained for the site would be by a disposal on the open market by way of public auction. Whilst some interest has been expressed by the owners of the former public house, which now operates as a funeral director, it is considered that the highest potential capital receipt that could be raised would be through an open market disposal.”

The identity of the new owners haven’t yet been revealed.

The pub closed a number of years ago and has now taken over by the Full Circle funeral directors.

Any new development of the site would have to be submitted to Leeds City Council for planning approval.
