Acting on behalf of the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) for Suffolk, Barker Storey Matthews has been appointed as agent under instruction in the sale of two of Suffolk Constabulary’s former police station sites in the county.

The sites for sale are the former police station in Felixstowe on High Road West and the former police station and magistrates court in Newmarket town centre.

Both are being sold through Barker Storey Matthews with outline planning permission for residential conversion or development as part of the OPCC’s planned programme to consolidate the constabulary’s property estate in Suffolk.

At 33 High Road West, Felixstowe, the site extends to 0.61 acres and includes the original police station building - dating from the 1930s – and a more modern building, called Glenfield Court, once used for accommodation purposes.  With garages on site too, the total floor area of the built premises is, approximately, 1,281 sq m (13,789 sq ft).

The site is within walking distance of the railway station and is in a popular residential location.  It is being offered for sale with a guide price of £1.5 million.

In Newmarket, the 0.31 acre site for sale spans Vicarage Road and Lisburn Road in the historic town centre where the police station and adjoining magistrates court were formerly located. 

The buildings on the site are arranged over ground, first and second floors with two separate basement areas.  Part of the first floor extends over the access to a car park area.  There is a garage block and a loading area with secure gated access.

The total floor areas of the original and additional buildings are 1,281 sq m (16, 480 sq ft) approximately.  The site is being marketed for sale with a guide price of £1.25 million.

Both sites are for sale through the Bury St Edmunds office of Barker Storey Matthews who advises that best bids for each site are invited by 12 April 2019.

Viewing of either the Felixstowe or Newmarket site is by appointment only.
