An eyesore garage which acts as a magnet for fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour has been sold off by the council.
The garage, in Cobden Terrace, Farnley, is in a poor condition with significant repairs needed to bring it to a decent and safe standard. There has been constant fly-tipping and graffiti, causing a blight for local residents.
The leaseholder of the garage, next to 10 Cobden Terrace, has asked to buy the garage and its land in a bid to refurbish it to a decent standard.
A council document says:
“This proposal would reduce the council’s maintenance liability and help prevent anti-social behaviour in the area.”

The value of the sale was not revealed by the council.
