A FORMER public toilet block in Weaverham has been put up for auction with a guide price of £10,000.

The council-owned building, next to the Esso petrol station in the town, will appear in auction house Pugh’s online sale in August.

The former public toilets are on a 1,700 sq ft site which auctioneers believe could be suitable for a range of alternative uses.

Pugh managing director Paul Thompson said: "We’ve had some interest in the site already and investors are continuing to display an appetite for new opportunities.

"It would be great to see this site put to an imaginative new use that would transform it into an asset to the Weaverham community once again.

"Any change of use would require planning consent from Cheshire West and Chester Council, but there are any number of possibilities for a new development in this thriving area."

Bidding on the former toilets opens on August 18 and closes the following day.
