A grade II listed former Victorian school currently used as offices by Leeds City Council is set to be sold off by the cash-strapped local authority.
Adams Court, on Kildare Terrace in Wortley, currently houses staff from Leeds City Council’s Children’s Services department but has been deemed as ‘surplus to requirements’.
Accommodation for Children’s Services staff that had occupied the building has been provided elsewhere within the council’s estate and the building has been empty from the end of last month.
The council says it is facing extra in-year pressures leading to an overspend of at least £29.6million for the current financial year and is constantly reviewing its estate.
A council report recommends the property be disposed of on the open market by way of public auction on 31 January 2024.
