West Leeds: Former school to be sold

Have your say

The site of a former school building and family centre is to be sold off for redevelopment.

The empty West Leeds Family Learning Centre in Whingate Road, Armley, was originally built as a school. According to a council report, it is being demolished and it is proposed to sell it on the open market either by inviting informal offers or by a public auction.

A report by council officers says: “Due to the poor condition of the property and as it constitutes a health and safety risk and a nuisance to surrounding residents, it has been decided to demolish the buildings to leave a site suitable for redevelopment.

“No future or alternative use has been identified for the property within the council.”
