Willmott Dixon To Build New Lancashire Police HQ
Lancashire Constabulary appointed Willmott Dixon to replace its Bonny Street Police Station with a new, state-of-the-art police headquarters in Blackpool. Willmott Dixon has created modern facilities for police forces in Newcastle, West Midlands, South Yorkshire and South Wales.
Close to the M55 at the former Progress House site on Clifton Road, Lancashire Constabulary’s new facility will be a headquarters for its West Division, covering Blackpool, Fylde, Wyre, Lancaster and Morecambe. It will provide a base for local policing and immediate response teams as well as a public enquiry desk, investigations hub and 42 custody cells. It will also house a range of specialist teams.
Forces across the country continue to invest millions in major overhauls of their estates to create better working environments for their staff and detainees and provide a more efficient use of property.
