Church site with planning permission for housing goes to auction

A plot of land that includes an empty church will go under the hammer at a property auction next week.

The Church of Christ the King, between the Leeds Liverpool Canal and Bradford Road in Sandbeds, has been empty since 2006 – when it shut as part of a wave of Catholic Church closures.

Last year a planning application to demolish the church and build 13 houses on the site was submitted to Bradford Council by Chris Phillips.

Those plans, which included a mix of five bed, four bed, three bed and two bed houses, were approved last month.

The plot of land, including the church, has now been included in an online property auction being held by Pugh on Tuesday.

The land has a guide price of £700,000.

The auction listing highlights the site is a short distance from Bingley, and points out that planning for a residential development has recently been approved.

It adds: “A disused church currently occupies the site and will require demolition to make way for the street.”

The online auction begins at 10am on Tuesday 18 June.
