18 Hampshire Police Stations To Be Sold
Hampshire Police have agreed plans to sell off dozens of their buildings, including 18 police stations.
It's aimed at helping them save £50million a year- the force insist the changes won't put safety at risk.
In recent months, there has been a review of all the buildings currently occupied by Hampshire Constabulary and owned by Hampshire Police Authority.
At a meeting on 23rd June, Hampshire Police Authority met to consider the changes proposed to the existing estate. The
Authority approved plans to reduce its estate and the development of four new custody centres.
The estate review has identified a number of buildings, including eighteen police stations, which will be earmarked for sale. A police presence will remain in every community and the Constabulary will not move from neighbourhood bases until an alternative location has been found within the same community.
Councillor Jacqui Rayment, Chair of Hampshire Police Authority, said: “We knew that making these decisions would never be easy. The Authority has been assured by the Chief Constable that safer neighbourhood policing teams will not be leaving
local areas, but moving to new locations within the same communities. The move to new premises will allow frontline policing services to be at the heart of the communities they serve.”
The busy road's being made two lanes in both directions between Segensworth and Titchfield - it's due to take 18 months.
