The Action is certainly causing a frenzy in this former police box in Walker Street, Hull. This unique auction lot looks to take centre stage at Connect UK’s upcoming auction.

“The Tardis it certainly isn’t, but this former police box is likely to undergo a Dr Who-like regeneration of its own. Sitting on a generous plot, some potential purchasers have expressed interest in using the land for residential development as well others proposing the commercial avenue, to re-develop into offices.
There is no planning permission associated with the single storey site so interested parties are advised to contact the local planning authority directly to discuss any alternative planning use or site appraisals. However, the site boasts road frontage and is surrounded by residential dwellings which proves promising for potential purchasers.
