KWB appointed to market the former Kingswinford Police Station

KWB commercial property agents have been appointed to market the former Kingswinford Police Station in the Black Country.

Acting on behalf of the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, KWB’s Martin Cook is marketing the freehold of the detached former police station, with two former semi-detached police houses, garages and portakabin, totalling 4,000 sq ft, as a residential redevelopment opportunity.

Situated in Kingswinford on the A491 Moss Grove, close to the junction of the A4101 High Street which links Wolverhampton and Stourbridge, the former police station is classed as sui-generis use in the planning regulations, which means that purchasers will require planning permission for any other use.

KWB has also been marketing the former Shirley Police Station in Solihull and Walsall Police Station. These properties were also being marketed as redevelopment opportunities, with the potential to be residential, retail or office space.

Martin Cook, the Registered Valuer at KWB, says: “This is the third police station we have brought to the market in 2017 on behalf of West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, with the previous disposals gathering a high level of interest from commercial and residential property developers. This property, in particular, has great potential for redevelopment for residential use, subject to planning permission, due to its immediate surroundings.

“As with the other police stations we’ve been marketing, Kingswinford Police Station could lend itself to an office or retail development.  However, its location within a residential area, together with the two former police houses backing the plot, make the development opportunity very much a residential one. We are seeking offers of over £450,000.”
