CITY CENTRE POLICE AND FIRE STATIONS TO MOVE

Nottinghamshire Police and Fire Service are set to move out of their City Centre stations with the Police looking to relocate within the City Centre and with the new fire station to be built elsewhere in the City.

Jonathan Bishop, head of Blue Light Estates, has been instructed to dispose of the site together with the acquisition of a relocation site for the Fire Authority.

The site in totality amounts to in the order of 1.4 acres with a location that is enviable and a great opportunity for any developer/occupier.

Jonathan commented:

“The sale of this prime City Centre site would avoid the need of an expensive refurbishment of the current buildings and will help pay for a new purpose built fire station designed to meet the latest operational needs of our clients.”

The Police and Crime Commissioner, Paddy Tipping, said he was keen to see a Police presence within the City and is looking at sites with the City Council.  He added:

“Whilst Central Police Station has been a landmark building for many years, it is now outdated and no longer financially viable.  We are currently considering a number of City Centre locations and working with the City Council to try and identify a property suitable for running an integrated service centre which will be easy for the public to access.”

Expressions of interest are invited by way of a sale or an option agreement.
