Toilets in Longport, Canterbury up for sale at Clive Emson

By KentOnline reporter

This unassuming block of toilets is up for sale at auction... if you're feeling flush.

The toilets in Longport, Canterbury, come with no chain, of course, and have a freehold guide price of up to £35,000.

The former WCs occupy a central site opposite the pay and display car park and near to Canterbury College and the UCA.

Currently owned by the council, it's believed they might be available for development, if the new owner can get the right permissions.

The lot is among 179 listed by Clive Emson, the land and property auctioneers, ahead of its next sale. 

Kevin Gilbert, auctioneer, said: “There might be potential to develop this block as long as all necessary consents are obtainable. 

“It is a quirky building and it’ll be interesting to see who bids and what plans they have for it.”

The land and property is to be offered by public auction on Monday, October 30 at the Clive Emson conference Centre in Detling, Maidstone, beginning at 11am.

But if those toilets are not to your liking, why not snap up a block in sunny Broadstairs? 

A beach front building, which previously was a shelter, toilet block and lift shaft is also going under the hammer.

The unusual lot in Viking Bay is now boarded up and is next to the cliff.

Property experts say is might be suitable for a number of uses, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
