Executive Summary:

All of the Estate is owned by the PCC. The Force has updated its Estates Strategy which covers the period from 2021 to 2031 and this was approved at the Estates Strategy Board on the 14th June 2022.


The Force has 34 operational sites, both Leasehold and Freehold, together with a number of parcels of land across the County.

The strategy outlines the vision and ambition for the Force estate, including a commitment to provide effective, efficient, and sustainable buildings that support the work of Surrey Police at a local level to keep communities safe and feeling safe. The strategy aims to assist in reducing costs, promoting operational effectiveness, enhancing conditions for staff, and enabling more agile and collaborative ways of working, supported by modern technology.

The largest project within the strategy relates to the redevelopment of the HQ at Mount Browne and it is anticipated that work will commence in 2023 and take a number of years to finish.


It is RECOMMENDED that the PCC adopts the Surrey Estates Strategy for 2021-31
