New Wortley: ‘Asbestos’ garages face demolition


Six derelict garages on an estate in New Wortley could be demolished.

Leeds City Council says the disused garages on Bruce Lawn are a haven for vandalism and anti-social behaviour.

In a council report approving the demolition, officers said:

“The current condition of these six garages has given rise to concern in the community with regular complaints of anti social behaviour and are a potential health and safety risk.

“The garages and associated structures on site are in a serious state of disrepair with broken/boarded doors and the structures may contain asbestos. The early demolition of these properties will remove these issues.”

The cost of the demolition is £12,646.
