Interest in former fire HQ in Cockermouth
Last updated at 16:29, Friday, 22 August 2014
The former fire headquarters building in Cockermouth is attracting strong interest from potential buyers, its owner said.
The building, on Station Road, was put on the market in July by agent WHR.
Cumbria County Council, which owns the 3.9-acre site, previously stated that possible uses could include retail and housing.
A council spokesman revealed this week that there had been some good initial interest in the building, but wouldn’t reveal names because it was “commercially sensitive”.
The building has been empty since staff moved to the new county fire and rescue headquarters in Penrith.
No future use for the building was found within the council.
The fire station itself is not part of the sale and will remain on Station Road.
The site is being offered for informal tender, and offers must be submitted by November 13.
