Today I am overwhelmed by the choice of former police stations for sale in just one property auction catalogue!

On July 10th, I can travel up to Manchester (where the auction is being held at Manchester United football club) and I can bid on no less than FIVE former police stations going for auction. Yes, 5 ex-police stations in one property auction – now that’s got to be worth saying:

“Hello, Hello, Hello…what’s going on here then”:

Former Police Station, Silver Street, Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria, CA17 4HA

Located in Kirkby Stephen, 4 miles from The Yorkshire Dales national park, this former police station with an additional three bedroom semi-detached house offers great potential.  The former police offices total approx. 600 sq ft and the three bedroom house has gardens front and back, and parking.  With potential for change of use to residential (subject to planning) this lot could offer plenty of redevelopment opportunity for a budding developer.

 

Former Police Station, Main Street, Cockermouth, Cumbria, CA13 9LQ

Located in the town centre, just 3 miles from the edge of the Lake District National Park, this mid terraced two storey former police station with separate rear store and an adjoining car park could be a great lot to bid for.  Offering total accommodation of approx. 3790 square feet, this handsome period building and car park could be a developer’s delight if you get your planning right!

Located approximately 1½ miles from Wigan town centre and 2½ miles from Junction 25 of the M6 motorway, this former police station is a handsome lot.  The premises offer approx. 6155 sq ft of accommodation and a rear yard comprising car parking spaces and four garages with a total site area of approx. 1016 sq yds.  The property already benefits from Planning Consent for change of use to offices or a children’s nursery – but there could be scope for more potential.  Get your developers hat on…and start thinking!

All of these former police stations can be bought at property auction next month.  They offer a variety of possibilities and development potential – so – get your (hard) hat on…and set your (police) siren for success!
