A string of car parks owned by Birmingham City Council has been sold as the beleaguered local authority continues to offload its assets.
The disposals raised more than £800,000 for the cash-strapped authority and follow the recent deal to sell the NEC Group earlier this year while Louisa Ryland House and 150-152 Great Charles Street were brought to market last year.
The auction, hosted by CPBigwood and filmed for BBC show Homes under the Hammer, saw a site in Bath Street, Newtown, go for £280,000, more than double the guide price of £125,000.
Two others in the Newton district, in Smith Street and Ward Street, and a Jewellery Quarter car park in Northwood Street, were collectively sold for £595,000 - £420,000 above the guide price.
A small parcel of land in St James Road, Handsworth, which comprises a derelict garage and car parking space, sold for £46,000 off a guide of £5,000.
In total, the council sold 80 per cent of the lots it was offering at the auction including all of its car parks.
CPBigwood partner and head of auctions Jonathan Hackett said: "CPBigwood's first 2015 auction sale was a huge success with 118 lots offered and 96 sold, giving a percentage of 82 per cent.
"Our total sale was just under £13 million and we hope to break the barrier with post auction deals.
"There was huge pre-auction interest in most of the lots - we had more than 3,000 viewings of the vacant residential ones."
Bilston Town FC's ground was due to go under the hammer with a guide price of £120,000 but was withdrawn prior to the auction following planning complications.
