A former nightclub in Ipswich with planning permission to become 14 flats is hoping to fetch a six-figure sale price when it heads to auction.

The building at 12 and 12a Arcade Street, in between Ipswich County Court and the back of the Westgate Street Primark, has stood empty for a decade.

Allsop has put the premise up for a guide price of £600,000, ahead of the auction on December 16.

In September, the property was marketed at  £700,000. 

The building has planning permission to be converted into 14 flats with access to a roof terrace. Permission was also sought for refuse and cycle stores.
