Thorpe: Former children's home to be sold off by council
4:00pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
A FORMER children’s home in Thorpe is set to be sold.
Essex County Council is looking to offload the property known as The Lodge, in Harwich Road, Thorpe.
The adapted nine-bedroom building has stood empty since it was closed in December 2012.
County councillors have now given the go-ahead for the building to be sold after it was deemed surplus to requirements.
Cash raised from the sale will go back into the council coffers.
