The former Bramley Housing Office is available to buy at an online auction – at a guide price of £280,000.
Cash-strapped Leeds City Council no longer needs the building and is looking to raise money by selling off some of its assets.
WLD previously reported that two community organisations each had an interest in taking on the building, which has been empty for at least three years.
Documents accompanying the online auction, which ends on 23 February 2022, state:
“The property is considered suitable for continued use as offices or change of use / redevelopment subject to obtaining the necessary consents.”
The documents on Bramley Housing Office can be found here. The auction is being run by Pugh Auctions.
WLD reported in May 2017 that council chiefs were hoping to raise in the region of £325,000 from the sale of the housing office on the commercial market.
West Leeds Dispatch‘s Cutswatch series has been following proposed council budget cuts and building sales over the past 12 months here.
