The former offices of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex will soon be on the open market for sale.
The two storey building in Hoffmanns Way, Chelmsford, is now empty after the small number of police staff based there relocated to Harlow at the end of November. The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner’s Office moved out of the Hoffmanns Way office in order to free up this valuable piece of estate so it could be sold, and the proceeds reinvested in policing.
Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, said: “The capital value of the property is estimated to be around £1.4 million – money, which can be invested back into policing.
“We need to deliver as much funding to frontline operational policing as possible rather than pour money into maintaining buildings that have long since ceased to be viable for the demands of modern policing.”
