The former fire station site at Westwood has sold at auction for £700,000.
The plot covers 1.69 acres (0.68 hectares). The buildings have been cleared so the site could be developed as long as all necessary consents are obtainable.
The lot was among 153 listed for sale by Clive Emson, the land and property auctioneers. The sale took place yesterday (November 2)
Auctioneer John Stockey said: “This substantial site also includes a telecommunications mast.
“The land is mostly covered in hard-standing and might be developed in various ways as long as all necessary consents are obtainable.
“It was among a number of excellent lots from Thanet and with its favourable situation and potential we had a lot of interest from builders and developers.”
Following demolition of the former buildings there remains on site an underground 4,532 litre diesel fuel tank which has been decommissioned and filled with foam.
The Thanet Fire Station began its closure process in 2011 when crew members relocated to Margate and Ramsgate.
