Society for deaf and blind people purchase Leeds office building

Published on: 15th June 2017

The Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People has purchased the former Leeds Diocesan office building on St Mary’s Street in Leeds.

The charity, which responds to the needs and aspirations of deaf, hard of hearing, blind and partially sighted people throughout Leeds, will be using the property for social activities and the development of its services.

The 4,600 sq ft building, which is located close to the bus station and the new Victoria Gate shopping destination, was sold by our Leeds office, acting on behalf of the Diocese of Leeds.

Martin Dodgson, President of the Society for Deaf and Blind People said, “Our new premises, so close to the city centre yet set within extensive lawns and with easy access for both pedestrians and car users, provides a perfect setting and location for our future.”

Tom Goode, office agent in our Leeds team commented, “We are delighted to have sold this property to the Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People. The Diocese of Leeds is a long standing client of ours and we are pleased to have assisted them on another disposal.”
