Fulwood Police Station will be sold off to help Lancashire Police meet its savings target of £42 million over the next four years

Fulwood’s former police station is to become two floors of offices.


Plans from Antony Sewell, who owns PTS Limited, have been tabled after a previous application was successful.

Mr Sewell had to apply for a certificate of lawfulness to convert the building from being a police station.

The Watling Street Road station is to have major works to the two floors to convert it into offices for around 10 staff.

It was sold by Lancashire Police at auction with a guide price of £300,000 as it raised money from closing district police stations to save money during cut bcks.

The full plans are on the city council website.

Anyone wishing to comment on the plans can do so there or by emailing quoting reference number 06/2015/0048 by Sunday 22 February.
