Newcastle City Council puts car park attendants cabin up for sale

A former car parking attendants' cabin in Newcastle is among the unusual buildings which councils across the north-east of England currently have on the market for sale or lease.

The Government recently changed the rules on council asset sales so any money which local authorities make on the deal can now be ploughed back into front line services.

It has led to a number of unusual council property "offers" including the small wooden cabin opposite a car park in Ellison Place.

Newcastle City Councillor Ged Bell said councils are having to look at every money-making opportunity they can find.
