Decision Log 008/2013 – Suspension of Estates Disposal Programme

On taking up office, the PCC announced his intention to review the current policy of police station and building disposal. In particular, the PCC wanted to ensure that the current strategy of disposal to maximise capital receipts was offering best value for public money and whether there was potential to retain, re-let or develop any properties. The PCC recognises that the original rationale of co-locating front-counter and neighbourhood policing teams in council offices and closing older, under-used buildings remains sound, but wishes to explore any potential for a more commercially focused approach to remaining sites.
