Second auction to be held to clear Cambridgeshire County Council's former HQ at Shire Hall

More news, no ads


A second auction of items from Cambridgeshire County Council’s Shire Hall campus which are no longer needed will be held on Thursday (April 7) following the move to the council’s new headquarters in Alconbury Weald.

The auction will offer a range of items and equipment ranging from a generator, to TV and projector screens, to desks and tables, to kitchen equipment. It follows a successful auction of office fixtures and fittings held last September.

Councillor Lucy Nethsingha, council leader, said: “In preparation for the move to Alconbury Weald, we carried out an extensive review of the contents of Shire Hall taking into consideration what was needed for our new home. The auction held in September helped clear items such as furniture and computer equipment, with the majority of items remaining being larger items of equipment used outside the offices themselves.

“With both our financial position and environmental priorities in mind, it’s important that we make the best use of all our resources, even those we no longer need.

“Sustainability and environmental impact are key priorities for the council. Offering the opportunity for these items to be re-used - rather than going to landfill - supports us in reaching our target of Net Zero by 2045.”

Purchasers wishing to bid for any lot must first register at www.ppauctions.com and agree to abide by both the specific sale conditions (purchaser's terms) and the general terms and conditions. Buyers will be responsible for collecting items from the Shire Hall campus following the close of the auction.
