Council to auction former Armley shop


A former shop owned by Leeds City Council is set to be sold at auction after being deemed surplus to requirements.

1 Barden Place in Armley is a three storey, Victorian back-to-back previously used as a shop with living accommodation above.

The council says rising maintenance and repair costs meant that it is financially unviable to re-let the property, which was used as a local store/off licence until November 2016.

A council report authorising the sale of the property said:

“The property is surplus to Council requirements and no operational reason has been identified to justify its retention. In these circumstances, its disposal represents prudent and economic asset management.”

The price of the property will be set closer to the auction.
