Disused ‘Old Police Box’ being auctioned

A Hull building that was once a shelter for police officers to make a cup of tea or rest is being auctioned by Connect UK.

The prime freehold land has a guide price of £55,000, as well as mains water, electricity and gas supply.

Connect UK Auctions said: “The Tardis it certainly isn’t, but this former police box is likely to undergo a Dr Who-like regeneration of its own.

“Sitting on a generous plot, some potential purchasers have expressed interest in using the land for residential development as well others proposing the commercial avenue, to re-develop into offices.

“There is no planning permission associated with the single storey site so interested parties are advised to contact the local planning authority directly to discuss any alternative planning use or site appraisals.

“However, the site boasts road frontage and is surrounded by residential dwellings which proves promising for potential purchasers.”

After the purchase buyers must pay a deposit of 5%, or a minimum of £5,000.

The conditions require a full legal completion 28 or 42 days following the auction.

The property is likely to be auctioned on December 14th.
